Mark Twain's Villa Near Florence.
FLORENCE, Nov. 8. - Samuel L. Clemens (Mark Twain) and his family, accompanied
by George Gregory Smith, have arrived here and taken possession of the Villa
Quarto, three miles and a half from the city. The villa was formerly the property
of a Russian Grand Duchesse and was afterward occupied by the King of Wurtemberg.
It is now owned by Count Reybaudi Massiglia, Italian Minister to Persia, who
was formerly Consul at Philadelphia, where he married Miss Paxton.
