Title

Samuel Clemens to George Washington Cable

Description

George Washington Cable was one of New Orleans's foremost writers of the 19th century, and is famous for his depictions of Creole life in the city. Cable and Samuel Clemens - better known as Mark Twain - were long-time friends and corresponded frequently. In the 1880s, the two went on speaking tours together, and traveled to various cities around the United States. In this letter, Clemens reassures Cable after newspapers falsely claim that Cable has slandered Clemens.
