Mark Twain's Letters - Volume 3 (1876-1885) by Albert Bigelow Paine The Monday Evening Club of Hartford was an association of most ofthe literary talent of that city, and it included a number of verydistinguished members. The writers, the editors, the lawyers, andthe ministers of the gospel who composed it were more often than notmen of national or international distinction. There was but onepaper at each meeting, and it was likely to be a paper that wouldlater find its way into some magazine.Naturally Mark Twain was one of its favorite members, and hiscontributions never failed to arouse interest and discussion. A"Mark Twain night" brought out every member. In the next letter wefind the first mention of one of his most memorable contributions-astory of one of life's moral aspects. The tale, now included in hiscollected works, is, for some reason, little read to-day; yet thecurious allegory, so vivid in its seeming reality, is well worthconsideration. We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection. Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades. The contents of the vast majority of titles in the Classic Library have been scanned from the original works.

Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work.
