April 23, 1910: “Several of his neighbors who stood close to him in life were permitted today to view the body. Mr. Clemens did much of his work in bed, and in death he still seemed a part of the surroundings of his active life. Ranged about him were his books. Beside him was his tabouret set with a tobacco jar, a collection of pipes, a stand of cigars and matches in abundance. Above his head was a reading lamp,” The Times says.

Notice that one thing he did in his final years in Redding, Conn., was to build a library.
