Reports of my death are an exaggeration.

Sending my reply late was a matter of course. My course.

    "It has been reported that I was seriously ill--it was another man; dying--it was another man; dead--the other man again...As far as I can see, nothing remains to be reported, except that I have become a foreigner. When you hear it, don't you believe it. And don't take the trouble to deny it. Merely just raise the American flag on our house in Hartford and let it talk." - Letter to Frank E. Bliss, 11/4/1897

I appreciate your kind attention to this matter.
