Mark Twain letter to Mr. Moscovitz, 31 December 1893


The Players
16 Gramercy Park
New York, Dec. 31/93

My Dear Mr. Moscovitz:

Thank you most kindly
for your pleasant letter.
I ought to be ashamed to
confess it, but I haven’t a
photograph on the place.
I probably have some in Paris,
where my family are, but
when I travel I reduce my
baggage to the essentials.

Truly Yours
Mark Twain

A thank you letter written by Mark Twain responding to a request for a photograph.


Clemens, Samuel Langhorne, 1835-1910,
Twain, Mark, 1835-1910
