Three letters dealing primarily with Clemens's writing and contracts.

Autograph letter signed ("Mark Twain"), one page, Hartford, 11 March 1885, to Charles Casey, regretting not having enough time to work on a problem: "I hurried all I could, but it was a very very severe strain upon that part of my bowels which is called my intellect & I perceived long ago that I had not asked for time enough on that problem by as much as two years." — Autograph letter initialed ("SLC"), one page, n.p. 25 August 1888 to neighbor and friend "Brer" (Henry C.)
