THE TWAIN-CABLE READINGS. -- The two humorous worthies -- Mark Twain and George W. Cable -- gave another series of readings from their own works at the Congregational Church last night. The audience was large and the entertainment an entire success.

The engraving at left appeared as an ad in the Post on the day of the lecture. The caption refers to MT as "a reader of his own superb fun" and Cable as "The distinguished Southern novelist presenting the matchless scenes of his own romances."
