Seeking a Mark Twain piece -- Advice to Little Boys

If this is the wrong sub-forum, will somebody please move me?

The particular Mark Twain essay I am trying to find is “Advice to Good Little Boys,” supposedly published about 1863 ~ 1865, around the same time as “Advice to Little Girls.” (This is not the same as “The Story of the Good Little Boy” published in 1870.)

"Advice to Little Girls" appears in all sorts of places, but I can't find the Boys.
I have found a couple of quotations from the piece, but not the article itself.

This one should be public domain.
Any leads to a freely available download would be greatly appreciated.

Hoping.........

Is this what you're looking for?

Yes, that's it!

How did you DO that? When I used google, I only got hits for paper books on Amazon. I need to hone my search skills, obviously.

Thank you so very much.

Your welcome... I found it by *dumb* luck. A google search for "twain advice good little boys" brought up a search result with the first hit to a website called justolder.com and the source link on that page led to the google book. Glad to be of help.
