Mark Twain Christmas Wish

In 1890 the editor of the New York World invited Mark Twain to offer a message of holiday goodwill to its readers. Twain sent this, "It is my heart-warm and world-embracing Christmas hope and aspiration that all of us - the high, the low, the rich, the poor, the admired, the despised, the loved, the hated, the civilized, the savage - may eventually be gathered together in a heaven of everlasting rest and peace and bliss - except the inventor of the telephone."
