MISS CLEMENS IN CONCERT.
Mark Twain Makes a Speech at His Daughter's Debut.
Special to The New York Times.
WINSTED, Conn., Sept. 22.--Before a large audience in the Norfolk Gymnasium, Norfolk, this evening, Miss Clara Clemens, the daughter of Mark Twain, made her debut as a concert singer. A large delegation of the young singer's friends was present from New York and other places. Miss Clemens was assisted by Marie Nichols, a Boston violinist. Miss Clemens, who is the possessor of a rich contralto voice, was enthusiastically received.
Mark Twain made a short speech at the close of the recital. He described his first appearance before an audience in San Francisco and told of a sudden stage fright that overcame him then. He compared stage fright to seasickness and said he wished his choices enemy could have both at the same time.
