Chambers Street Theatre for 11am on Oct 10th, 2013

One of the most charming chapters of "Roughing It" by Mark Twain is the "Funeral of Buck Fanshaw."  Here is the conversation between two people, both speaking English, but not quite understanding what the other said. This is a delightful record of the slang speech used in Virginia City during the Silver Strike.  Ruth reads the story as Twain wrote it with pronouncings of words as was used then.  Enjoy.
