One Response to “Francis Luis Mora (1874 – 1940)”

  1. Bruce said

    Robert Louis Stevenson and Mark Twain did indeed know each other.

    From “Robert Louis Stevenson and I, sitting in Union Square and Washington Square a great many years ago, tried to find a name for, the submerged fame, that fame that permeates the great crowd of people you never see and never mingle with; people with whom you have no speech, but who read your books and become admirers of your work and have an affection for you. You may never find it out in the world, but there it is, and it is the faithfulness of the friendship, of the homage of those men, never criticizing, that began when they were children. They have nothing but compliments they never see the criticisms, they never hear any disparagement of you, and you will remain in the home of their hearts’ affection forever and ever. And Louis Stevenson and I decided that of all fame, that was the best, the very best.” – from speech, 1/11/1908

    The Internet amazes me constantly. Would you believe there is a blog called “Stevenson and Twain – “a strange association, a big mistery”? (Sic – the lady who writes the blog is Italian and her English is not perfect.) She is a Mark Twain scholar, who “got the fellowship thanks to her research focused on Mark Twain and Robert Louis Stevenson friendship.” (Uh, she seems to have “borrowed” the image above for her blog header. 🙂
