My notion of running a tab & settling score? Twain it!

In your prior replies, you seemed confident that I was misunderstanding. A safe bet. No takers.

You seem to have quickly adjusted your style gauged to whom you are addressing. It worked. Overriding sentiment is amusement. Adventure. You are now writing in a style that agrees with me. Much obliged.

As for the good of "credit clearing" & what all DTCC has done... Forensic study is not for me.

MARK TWAIN ~ A BIOGRAPHY
THE PERSONAL AND LITERARY LIFE OF
SAMUEL LANGHORNE CLEMENS
.
BY ALBERT BIGELOW PAINE

Certain happenings as recorded in this work will be found to differ
materially from the same incidents and episodes as set down in the
writings of Mr. Clemens himself. Mark Twain's spirit was built of the very fabric of truth, so far as moral intent was concerned, but in his earlier autobiographical writings--and most of his earlier writings were autobiographical--he made no real pretense to accuracy of time, place, or circumstance--seeking, as he said, "only to tell a good story"--while in later years an ever-vivid imagination and a capricious memory made history difficult, even when, as in his so-called "Autobiography," his effort was in the direction of fact.

"When I was younger I could remember anything, whether it happened or
not," he once said, quaintly, "but I am getting old, and soon I shall
remember only the latter."
