Also would add that the Begum of Bengal speech was
reprised in New York at the last Lotos Club Speech,
delivered on Jan. 11, 1908.

The Lotos Club honored Twain several times, is still
in existence today, and one can see the original James
Montgomery Flagg portrait of Twain there.

Suggest you consider checking out Fatout pp. 603-611
as well.
