The American Claimant

The American Claimant was published in 1892 by Mark Twain.

Excerpt:

“Well, there’s one thing, sure.  The materializing has got to stop right
where it is.  If she’s got to marry a spectre, let her marry a decent one
out of the Middle Ages, like this one–not a cowboy and a thief such as
this protoplasmic tadpole’s going to turn into if Sellers keeps on
fussing at it.  It costs five thousand dollars cash and shuts down on the
incorporated company to stop the works at this point, but Sally Sellers’s
happiness is worth more than that.”
