In the Fall of 1866, exactly 150 years ago, Samuel Clemens was still struggling financially. His first short story, The Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, published a year before under his pen name Mark Twain, paid him nothing. He was living in San Francisco and wanted to get back to the East Coast. Most men his age, 30, already had their occupation and were settled into life.. Clemens was still struggling. He decided that he would give a series of speeches about his experiences in Hawaii. So, on October 2, 1866 he climbed up on stage at the Maguire Opera House in San Francisco and began his career as Mark Twain - humorist, orator and writer. During his lifetime, he would make more money from his speeches than his writings. His writings live on, there is no recording of his voice..
