Letter from Mark Twain to Elisha Bliss

LONDON, Sept. 28, 1872.

Mark Twain Elisha Bliss

FRIEND BLISS,—I have been received in a sort of tremendous way, tonight, by the brains of London, assembled at the annual dinner of the Sheriffs of London—mine being (between you and me) a name which was received with a flattering outburst of spontaneous applause when the long list of guests was called.

I might have perished on the spot but for the friendly support and assistance of my excellent friend Sir John Bennett—and I want you to paste the enclosed in a couple of the handsomest copies of the "Innocents" and "Roughing It," and send them to him. His address is

"Sir John Bennett,
Cheapside,
London."

Yrs Truly
S. L. CLEMENS.
