One of Mark Twain’s best-known stories is "The £1,000,000 Bank-Note". It charts the magical rags-to-riches ascent of a virtuous and resourceful mining broker's clerk from San Francisco who arrives in London with a single dollar in his pocket, and proceeds to ultimate and splendid financial success and fame in London society—a paean to ingenuity and a celebration of its cunning confidence-man narrator. Included are furthermore ‘Mental Telegraphy’, ‘A Cure for the Blues”, ’The Enemy Conquered; or, Love Triumphat’, ‘Playing The Courier’, ‘The German Chicago’ and ‘A Petition To The Queen Of England”.
