About This Item

Hartford, 1875. One page, in ink, on octavo ruled lettersheet. Folded for mailing, else very good or better. To James R. Osgood, then principal of James R. Osgood & Company, and later publisher of THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER, and other titles by Clemens and his contemporaries: "My Dear Osgood: Confound it, my Boston trip is knocked in the head. It would take so long to explain why, that I will not attempt it, but only send regrets, do some private cussing, & wish the dinner party a happy time & Aldrich & family godsend & a glorious tour. Ys Ever Mark [flourish]." Clemens had earlier declined another invitation to dine with Osgood on 12 February. T.B. Aldrich and his wife embarked in late March for an eight month tour of Europe.
