MARK TWAIN'S SUPERSTITION



Sam Clemens, colorized


Mark Twain developed what he was pleased to call a "superstition."

He decided that if he wanted to hear from someone, he would write that person a letter and then tear it up.

Infallibly, he claimed, he would then receive a letter from the person to whom he had written.
