    I have read this version and there are no missing pages; Twain covers the years of the children's youth in fewer details.

    Mark Twain! Mark Twain!

    Who is this Ellen Gregory? Are we forgetting who wrote the classics? Do we need someone to explain Mark Twain to us, as we need preachers to explain the Bible to us? This was a small very humorous piece of writing about, what else? the daily lives of Eve and Adam. Mark Twain is up to his usual level of humor, and some gal tries to help us understand it! Nuts huh?
