AN OVERSIGHT - MARK TWAIN.
Tells Why Proper Credit Was Not Given to English Author.
Special to The New York Times.
BALTIMORE, June 9. - Mark Twain arrived in Baltimore late this afternoon and went to the Belvedere, where he denied himself to all newspaper men. Shortly before midnight, however, in answer to a note sent to his room asking if he had nay reply to make to the complaint that he had incorporated in his latest book, "Is Shakespeare Dead?" a chapter from a volume called "The Shakespeare Problem Restated," written by George P. [sic] Greenwood, without giving credit, Mr. Clemens wrote the following:
"It was merely an oversight in not giving the proper credit."
Mr. Clemens will go tomorrow to Saint Timothy's School for Girls at Catonsville and make an address to the graduates.
