        I'm interested in this tidbit and other links between Twain and the
Pacific Northwest.  I vaguely remember an anecdote about him visiting
Fairhaven (now Bellingham WA) but forget the details.  Something about
needing a drink of whiskey at some very early hour of the morning.  Where
would you recommend that I begin looking for information on Twain and the
Pacific Northwest?
