Mark Twain was out and about this week. On Tuesday he joined the Berks County Visiting Nurses for
a volunteer appreciation luncheon, and then Friday he spoke for two hours to an audience of students from Exeter High School.
When asked if he enjoyed his speaking engagements, the man in the white suit said, “The nurses were most caring and kind. I felt surrounded by a room full of Florence Nightingales. As for the students, I kept the paddle close, but never took it out of the sack. I enjoy my time very much with the young scholars.”
