Mark Twain Day By Day was originally a print reference, meticulously created by David Fears, who has generously made this work available, via the Center for Mark Twain Studies, as a digital edition. Please recognize that this is a preliminary, BETA version of a resource which we will continue to develop in the coming years. While we are excited about the functionality it currently offers - for instance, the searchbar in the upper left-hand corner - we also recognize that there are numerous errors (to formatting, spacing, punctuation, etc.) which were not part of the print edition. Moreover, the formatting may change based upon which browser you use to access the site. Rest assured, we are continuing to work to correct these problems and increase functionality so as the maximize the accuracy, accessibility, and user-friendliness of the resource. If you encounter major technical difficulties or find entries that have been made particularly messy or indecipherable during the digitization process, please let us know via [email protected]
At last I am applying to Sam Moffett. He does not belong to the D.F.’s; he is
not indifferent, he is not incompetent. We shall get the facts, this time. Then
we shall know whether we may venture home or not. I cannot think why God, in a
moment of idle & unintelligent fooling, invented this bastard human race;
why, after inventing it, he chose to make each individual of it a
nest of disgusting & unnecessary diseases, a tub of rotten offal. / With
love & best wishes…[MTP].
