Comments:

Gholbirius
Twain begins this short piece with a family history that skewers the more typical boasting of ancestors of note. Twain's various euphemisms for the endings of some of his ancestors are delightful.

Aware that the autobiography is rather short, Twain added a short piece of historical fiction, perhaps inspired by the idea of ancestors. This, too, parodies the historical fiction conventions of the day and the ending is distinctly memorable.

I want an ending. THE ENDING IS OBVIOUS. The two girls should marry and rule together, forever preserving each other's secrets and lives.
Arashilkis
Read this story and be both apalled and amused. Eleven more words? Eleven more words? I could not possibly find them.

He makes me laugh out loud!
Uaha
A short but funny 'autobiography' followed by a short story with an ending that I am sure leaves Mark Twain laughing in his grave to this day.

Twain holds your attention and solicits money at the same time.

The master of master storytellers is marvelous at slandering back his ancestors for their foibles.
This book was down right funny as Twin made fun of himself and played very fast & loose on his family history.
