Helen Keller writes to Mark Twain as he turns 70
I want a 70th Birthday Party exactly like Twain’s, right down to the Twain-bust party swag. I am pessimistic that it will occur though for I just turned 48.
Great comment on the background to this letter. I love that "each of the 170 guests went home with a foot-high bust of Twain". Astonishing!
Thanks for sharing yet another amazing letter I never would have discovered on my own! I always look forward to getting your newsletter.
A perfect read for this Thanksgiving day. Thank you.
It’s a great story! 🤍 Thank you so much for letting me learn this.
