Mark Twain Trail Quote of the Day – Wednesday – February 10, 2021


“Livy, my darling, I want you to be sure and remember to have, in the bathroom when I arrive, a bottle of Scotch whiskey, a lemon, some crushed sugar, and a bottle of Angostura bitters.  Ever since I have been in London I have taken in a wine glass what is called a cock-tail (made with these ingredients) before breakfast, before dinner, and just before going to bed.”  Mark Twain, Letter to his wife Olvia, 1874
