Twain, Mark,

Twain, Mark, who visited Princeton in the early 1900s, considered coming here to live. ``Princeton would suit me as well as Heaven,'' he wrote his friend, Laurence Hutton, a former editor of Harper's who was a lecturer in the University, ``better in fact, for I shouldn't care for that society up there.''
