Quotes from Trollope’s letter to Kate Field and from Mark Twain’s recollection of the dinner. Twain wrote down his memory of the luncheon 34 years later after dining at the Garrick Club a second time.
Suggests that Trollope’s idea for the myth of the “glorious West” in The
Way We Live Now may have originated with the Garrick Club luncheon.
