Interesting to see Twain described as "a man of considerable height," since I believe I've read he was 5-foot-8. I wonder if that was really considered tall in those days? Also, I assume the "unpublished sheets" involving Colonel Sellers and his "visionary projects" must have come from the play he wrote with Howells called "Colonel Sellers as a Scientist" -- an odd choice for a public reading, even if it did result in "uncontrolled mirth." Thanks for posting the review. -- Bob G.
