THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER

 

 

In writing "Tom Sawyer" I had no idea of laying down rules for the bringing up of small families, but merely to throw out hints as to how they might bring themselves up, and the boys seemed to have caught the idea nicely.
- Speech, October 17, 1893 to the Oxford Club; reported in the Brooklyn Eagle, October 18, 1893, p. 5
