“A Cat Tale”
[manuscript, 1880]

This manuscript, which plays on the word “cat” and includes the author’s illustrations, was based on the bedtime stories that Clemens improvised for his daughters. It was not published until 1959, when it was included in Concerning Cats: Two Tales by Mark Twain (San Francisco: The Book Club of California).
