"Your letter brings you back to me, & I see you in your dainty room, among your books and pictures--I
see the south window & the hanging basket of flowers--& more than all, I see your precious little figure
bending over that fanciful portico." letter to Olivia L. Langdon, 12.23.1868, Lansing, MI, as quoted in
Mark Twain's Letters, Vol. 2
