SAMUEL L. CLEMENS (MARK TWAIN). ALS: "S L Clemens", 1p, 4¼x6¾. [New York City], 1894 March 1. On stationery imprinted "The Players./16 Gramercy Park" to unknown recipient. Begins: "My Dear Sir". In full: "I would do it very willingly, but ------ I sail for Europe three days before that. I am pretty effectively barred, you see. Truly Yours". Actor Edwin Booth conceived The Players Club, the famous association of actors, artists, authors and patrons of the arts, which was organized in January 1888 with Mark Twain among the founding members. Booth gave the club the house at 16 Gramercy Park in New York that is still its headquarters. Mark Twain frequently stayed at The Players while in New York City and was staying there when he wrote this letter. In 1893, he had moved his family to Berlin, returning to New York City in September. He returned to Europe in March 1894, shortly after writing this letter. Lightly soiled. Overall, fine condition.
