Summary Samuel Clemens was the local reporter for the San Francisco Daily Morning Call from June to October 1864. He wrote many hundreds of items for his newspaper, but nearly all of them have been buried in the files for more than a century. Now Clemens of the Call reprints two hundred of them, a rich yield from what is probably the last sizable unmined pocket of Clemens' published writings. The present collection represents a new order of Clemens' journalism. Here, the local reporter Samuel Clemens may be seen writing under pressure and close to fast-breaking events as he covers the news day in and day out. The selections are arranged chronologically within broad topical groupings. The editor has provided a general introduction, annotations, and a chronological checklist of Call items, and he has indicated the evidence that in his opinion is sufficient to establish Clemens as the author of the reprinted selections. --from inside jacket.
