Brief notes. O’Connor notes that in early 1867 Miller along with Bierce, Twain, Harte, etc. were contributing to the San Francisco periodicals. He also mentions a letter from Bierce to Stoddard dated January 5, 1872 (now in the Huntington Library Collection) in which Bierce asks Stoddard to ask Joaquin and Ina for a visit. The establishment of the Western Authors Publishing Company is also discussed. This company, a partnership of Bierce, Joaquin and W. C. Morrow, was not a success and only published Bierce’s Black Beetles in Amber. Reference (92-93) discusses an 1873 banquet in London that included Twain, Miller and Bierce, where Miller’s dress and comportment were reportedly an embarrassment to Bierce and Twain.]
