I just ran across this, thought it was pretty cool and wanted to share.

It's a letter from Mark Twain to Walt Whitman, upon Whitman's 70th birthday.

I'm surprised by the vision of man "grown to his full stature," approaching with a banner. There's something downright Nietzschean about it, and I didn't think that the eccentric psychologist of Sils Maria was likely to be on Mark Twain's reading list. Maybe he was.
