Publisher's Summary

Saladin Foster and his wife, Electra, are jolted out of their tranquility by the stunning news that a distant relative has left them $30,000. The one condition is that the couple must be able to prove "that they had taken no notice of the gift by spoken word or by letter, had made no inquiries concerning the [ship] Moribund's progress toward the everlasting tropics, and had not attended the funeral." This condition leads to some major difficulties. Other Twain stories included in this audiobook are "Experiences of the McWilliamses with Membranous Croup", "The Facts in the Great Beef Contract", "My Watch", "The Canvasser's Tale", "The Professor's Yarn", "The Story of the Old Ram", "A Story without an End", "Cecil Rhodes and the Shark", and "The Invalid's Story".
