Humor of Godville by Mark Twain

Humor of Godville by Mark Twain is adapted from his book Following the Equator [1897]:

It was a long journey--two nights, one day, and part of another day, from Bombay eastward to Allahabad.

Allahabad means

"City of God."

I get this from the books.

From a printed curiosity--a letter written by one of those brave and confident Hindoo strugglers with the English tongue, called a "babu"--I got a more compressed translation:

"Godville."

It is perfectly correct, but that is the most that can be said for it.
