August 4: Hartford
From Lorch: "...Hartford, Connecticut, to talk with Elisha Bliss about his forthcoming book, Innocents Abroad. There was still work to do on the manuscript, and since Bliss hoped to bring the book out in December, he remained in Hartford to finish it. ...But his primary concerns during the weeks that followed were the courtship of Olivia Langdon of Elmira, New York, and the growing necessity of replenishing his rapidly diminishing funds."
