Mark Twain to John Russell Young [4 Dec. 1867] “I am sorry to trouble you so much, but behold the world is full of sorrows ., & grief is the heritage of man.”

Twain had been trying to catch Young for a couple days without success. In closing he offered an apology of sorts saying, “I am sorry to trouble you so much, but behold the world is full of sorrows ., & grief is the heritage of man.
