It figures Sam Clemens would be posting this anecdote at James' expense, which incidentally implies the report of Clemens' death was an exaggeration.

Thank you! I saw the last paragraph quoted long ago in a book review, and had since wondered where one might find it in Wharton's writings.

It sounds exactly like how you’d imagine it would sound when Henry James is asking for directions...
