Letter from Mark Twain to Elisha Bliss, Jr.

SAN FRANCISCO, May 5, 1868.

Mark Twain Elisha Bliss, Jr.

DR. SIR,—The Alta people, after some hesitation, have given me permission to use my printed letters, and have ceased to think of publishing them themselves in book form. I am steadily at work, and shall start East with the completed Manuscript, about the middle of June.

I lectured here, on the trip, the other night-over sixteen hundred dollars in gold in the house—every seat taken and paid for before night.

Yrs truly,
MARK TWAIN.
