TWAIN BOOKS FOR LIBRARY.
Humorist's Daughter Announces She Will Give 2,500 to Redding Institution.
REDDING, Conn., July 9. - Mrs. Clara Clemens-Gabrilowitsch, daughter of the late Samuel L. Clemens, (Mark Twain,) has formally notified the directors of the Mark Twain Free Library here that she will present to that institution practically the entire library of her father, now in the Redding residence, Stormfield.
The gift includes nearly 2,500 volumes. Mr. Clemens drew a check for $6,000 in favor of the Redding library a few days before his death, and the money will be used to erect a building for the institution.
