By Order of the Author
|The first of many annoying Authors Notes: I wrote the historians note myself so historians, donít take up arms against me. Also, as it will become abundantly clear, most all English teachers will use my quoting of the Great Mark Twain to the effect that I believe myself to be on par with The Great Writer. Therefore in order for you to stop pondering these things and get on with the story I must simply say that I like Twainís work, and if he hadnít already written this marvelous bit I would have, as it seems to fit this humble work of mine nicely.|
