BANQUET

Twain speaking
Original graphic from New York WORLD,
December 13, 1897

A banquet is probably the most fatiguing thing in the world except ditchdigging. It is the insanest of all recreations. The inventor of it overlooked no detail that could furnish weariness, distress, harassment, and acute and long-sustained misery of mind and body.
- Mark Twain in Eruption
