Only reason I would eliminate E is
The word Reveals should modify "A letter".
And I also believe "that Reveals that" is awkward.

E distorts the meaning. It means to say that Mark Twain wrote a letter as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Anyone care to explain why B is wrong here? I chose C based on concision. Same year of publication sounds weird to me in this context.
