The Mark Twain Journal
The source or reference link you pressed to get here refers to the Spring
1990 issue of the Mark Twain Journal (ISSN 0025-3499), which is almost
entirely composed of an article by Michael H. Marleau who was good
enough to send me a copy of that issue.

The Mark Twain Quarterly was founded in 1936 by Cyril Clemens.

The Mark Twain Journal formerly the Mark Twain Quarterly is published twice
yearly, Spring and Fall.

As of the Spring 1990 issue, my only source of information on the Journal,
it was edited by Thomas A. Tenney and published by the English Department,
College of Charleston, Charleston, SC.

Also as of 1990, many back issues were still available, begining with Volume 13 and could be ordered at $8 each, post paid. To my knowledge, new subscriptions are still available.
Back issues are available on microfilm and microfiche from: University Microfilms 300 North Zeeb Road Ann Arbor, MI 48106 The article,
"The Crash Of Timbers Continued--the Deck Swayed under Me" Samuel L. Clemens, Eyewitness to the Race and Collision between the Pennsylvania and Vicksburg,
is Mr. Marleau's lenghty account of that race and the collision. It contains actual court testimony given by Clemens and others, all extensively referenced.
Bio from the Mark Twain Journal
"Micheal H. Marleau received a degree in history from Delta College in Stocton, California in 1970. As a student, he worked at the Stuart Library of Western Americana at the nearby University of the Pacific, developing skills and experience for historical research; this led to articles published in Pacific Historian and Far Westener. He still conducts historical research and, on occasion, for the Mark Twain Project (University of California, Berkeley). Over the years he has had unforgettable adventures in researching Sam Clemens's mining activities in Esmeralda, discovering the actual shafts and tunnels of mining claims in which he had interest, and finding the site of the quartz mill in which Clemens worked. As time and resources permit, he continues to probe the little known aspects of Sam Clemens's extraordinary life. The present issue of the Journal shows what may turn up when a researcher asks the right questions."
