April 10, 1874.

Dear Red,

There is an item going around like this:

“Mark Twain received [&] paid the bill for a complimentary dinner to him in Hartford lately.”

Confidentially between you [&] me, I am bringing a libel suit on this [&] I want you to send me all the newspapers you can find containing it.

Yours ever,
