Letter to Andres Carnegi  (1906) 
by Mark Twain

Composed on February 10, 1906 to Andres Carnegi, in Scotland. . As published in the Harper & Brothers 1917 Letters of Mark Twain.

Dear St. Andrew,

The whisky arrived in due course from over the water; last week one bottle of it was extracted from the wood and inserted into me, on the instalment plan, with this result: that I believe it to be the best, smoothest whisky now on the planet. Thanks, oh, thanks: I have discarded Peruna.

Hoping that you three are well and happy and will be coming back before the winter sets in.

I am,
Sincerely yours,
Mark.
