Clemens family stayed first with the Langdons, until June 29, in Elmira, before adjourning to Quarry Farm.  Sam would immediately depart for the Congress of Authors Centennial Event in Philadelphia on  July 1st.

Sometime before July 6, Sam traveled to Hartford and returned to Elmira by the 18th.

After leaving Hartford on June 15, overnighting at the St. James Hotel in New York, and arriving at the Langdon mansion in Elmira a day or two later, the Clemenses moved to Quarry Farm by the end of the month and Sam set to work in his study, which was located, as he joked to Howells, “1,000,000 miles from New York.” The Life of Mark Twain - The Middle Years 1871-1891 page 197.
