The movement to purchase the house in Hannibal where Mark Twain spent his boyhood days as a memorial to Missouri's gifted son is meeting with universal approval.
Governor Hadley, Senators Stone and Warner, members of the Missouri senate and house, and other promising citizens all over Missouri stand ready and willing to aid the movement in every possible manner.
The universal sentiment of approval in at least some measure indicates the esteem, love and affection in which the great writer was held by the people of his own state. Missouri will be derelict of her duty if a fitting memorial is not dedicated in honor of her most distinguished citizen.
A Mark Twain memorial association should be formed in Hannibal at once for the purpose of maturing plans for placing the matter properly before the next legislature of the state.
