Looking for Mark Twain quote
Seeking Twains quote
January 2, 2012
I was wondering if I could get some help with something through your newspaper. A long time ago when I was in Bermuda I read a quote in the introduction to a tourist book about Bermuda( I cant remember the name or the author of this book). It said that Mark Twain called the seas of Bermuda a sort of hysterical blue in colour.
I have been trying to track down this quote and have never been able to find it again - would you be able to point me in the right direction? Is this a real Mark Twain quote? Do you know where and when he said it?
Any help you could give me with my search would be very gratefully received
