The Clemens Clasp


From the fine folks over at twainquotes.com comes this Twain quote:
A most moving and pulse-stirring honor--the heartfelt grope of the hand, and the welcome that does not descend from the pale, gray matter of the brain but rushes up with the red blood of the heart.
- The Begum of Bengal speech, 1907


Illustration by Dan Beard for "Travelling with a Reformer"
COSMOPOLITAN MAGAZINE, Dec. 16, 1893.
