Mark Twain at the Buffalo Express
Articles and Sketches by America's Favorite Humorist
Edited by Joseph P. McCullough and Janice McIntire-Strasburg
"I am not going to introduce any startling reforms, or in any way attempt to make trouble. I am simply going to do my plain, unpretending duty, when I cannot get out of it.... I shall always confine myself strictly to the truth, except when it is attended with inconvenience."—from Mark Twain's "Salutatory," Buffalo Express, August 21, 1869
In August 1869 Mark Twain acquired part ownership of the Buffalo Express. During the following eighteen months, he wrote some of his best short pieces, humorous sketches, rants, and commentaries. Mark Twain at the "Buffalo Express" collects these complete and unabridged writings for the first time.
