[Autograph Letter, Signed ("Mark"), to James R. Osgood]
Hartford. 20 February [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.
