At least the teachers and most readers of the "new" HF will know that the text has been altered. I tripped over this URL http://www.oldfashionedamericanhumor.com/mark-twains-nevada-funeral.html this afternoon and saw that it had been altered without being identified as such. For example: ".....Here once when the Catholics got to throwing stones through the Methodist Sunday school windows ..." "....six plumes on the hearse, and a driver on the box in a boiled shirt and a plug hat...." I think that bothers me even more. Tony BTW, Carl Chimi, if you're not a Twain scholar, maybe you should be one. That was a well written piece.
