SAMUEL L. CLEMENS (MARK TWAIN)
The author must decline an invitation from the Clover Club due to existing engagements.
Third Person ALS: "S.L. Clemens" in text, 1p, 4½x7. New York City, no year, January 3. On letterhead of The Players to unknown recipient at the Clover Club. In full: "Mr. S.L. Clemens desires to thank the Clover Club for the compliment of their invitation, & at the same time express his regret that existing engagements debar him from accepting." The Players Club, located in a Greek Revival townhouse at 16 Gramercy Park in Manhattan, was founded in 1888 by actor Edwin Booth. Clemens was one of the charter members and lived there when visiting New York City. The Clover Club was established by prominent men in the business community, along with city officials and journalists, in Philadelphia in 1882. It is still in existence. Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), who wrote under the pen name Mark Twain, was a steamboat pilot, journalist, world traveler and renowned lecturer. Above all, he was a skillful essayist and novelist whose lasting contributions to American literature include Tom Sawyer (1875), Huckleberry Finn (1885) and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. Slightly creased with folds, not at signature. Mounting remnants at corners of verso of integral leaf (no show through). Fine condition.
