Did E.A. Poe say the quote "I don't give a damn for a man that can only spell a word one way"? If not would anyone possibly know who did?

Not from Poe, but from S. L. Clemens (1835 - 1910), better known as "Mark Twain"... Yours sincerely, Raven's Shade (Belgium).

I believe it was said by Ben Johson, the English contemporary of Shakespeare.
