It's an amusing little satire of societal mores, and a pretty good example of Twain's writing, too; not the best thing he ever wrote, but entertaining enough and worth reading.
The Twain character narrator is enjoying a quiet moment when he is visited by a most unpleasant character - the twisted, gnomeish living manifestation of his bad conscience. He and his conscience trade barbs and insults until the rather manic ending. This setup allows for Twain to display all of his signature humor, wit, self deprecation, and edgy honesty. There is some broad humor and some fairly cutting commentary, but it's basically a short one-act that will remind you why Twain remains so important to American readers.
A nice freebie find and a happy diversion.
