FUNERAL OF MRS. CLEMENS
Mark Twain is Coming to America with His Wife's Body.
FLORENCE, June 7. - A funeral service of the simplest character took place over the body of Mrs. Samuel L. Clemens in the Villa Quarto to-day after a vexatious visit from sanitary officers and compliance with annoying regulations. Only members of the family were present.
The coffin was taken to a temporary vault, from which it will be sent to Genoa and placed aboard a German steamer sailing for New York on June 25.
Mr. Clemens (Mark Twain) will go to the United States with the body.
