" From Chapter CCXI of Mark Twain: A Biography by Albert Bigelow Paine: "It was early in July, 1900, that they removed to Dollis Hill House, a beautiful old residence surrounded by trees on a peaceful hilltop, just outside of London. It was literally within a stone's-throw of the city limits, yet it was quite rural, for the city had not overgrown it then, and it retained all its pastoral features-a pond with lily-pads, the spreading oaks, the wide spaces of grassy lawn...Much company came to them at Dollis Hill. Friends drove out from London, and friends from America came often, among them-the Sages, Prof. Willard Fiske, and Brander Matthews with his family. Such callers were served with tea and refreshment on the lawn, and lingered, talking and talking, while the sun got lower and the shadows lengthened, reluctant to leave that idyllic spot. Dollis Hill comes nearer to being a paradise than any other home I ever occupied,' [Clemens] wrote when the summer was about over. Lightly soiled at blank margins. Ink smudge touches two letters of text. Mid-horizontal fold touches one line of address. See more material from these signers.
