That opening quote you attribute to Mark Twain I have far more often seen attributed to Blaise Pascal. Here is the version of it from Pascal’s “Provincial Letters” (#16) in Thomas M’Crie’s translation: “The present letter is a very long one, simply because I had no leisure to make it shorter.” Turns out that many other writers, including Cicero, have been given credit for variations on it. You can find an interesting discussion at https://quoteinvestigator.com/2012/04/28/shorter-letter.
Aren’t you glad you have readers who can focus on the most important aspects of your wonderful essays? :-)
Can't wait to finally get copies! You have a way with words that fills the soul!
