HUMOROUS LECTURE – The people of Georgetown seldom have such a literary treat in store for them as is offered them to-morrow evening when “MARK TWAIN,” the well known humorist will enlighten them as to various matters of interest. The best of this statement is that it is for the benefit of the Old Women’s Home. The merit of the lecture, however, would fill Forrest Hall without the additional inducement of benefiting the poor.
"Mark Twain in Washington, D.C." set to be released by The History Press fall 2013.
