Papers of Edward Howard House [manuscript], 1873-1901.

Personal and business correspondence of House chiefly concerns a law suit over the stage production of "The prince and the pauper," an adaptation of Mark Twain's novel of the same name, and several subsequent, related law suits which did not directly involve Twain. Other topics include House's health, the estate settlements of relatives, royalties, copyright, and his writing, particularly the anti-missionary novel "Yone Santo," and the stories "Midnight warning" and "The Claiborne twins". Events in Japan, particularly the 1894 conflict with China and subsequent Treaty of Shimonoseki are discussed. Edwin Booth, child actors, Ulysses S. Grant's world tour, and Ruralf Dittrich's concerts are mentioned. With the correspondence is a draft of an article on Edwin Booth. F. (Frank) Brinkley (1841-1912) is a frequent correspondent.
