August 10 Saturday – In the morning the men explored Dilsburg Castle [Rodney 103]. Sam and Joe started back to Baden Baden by train. They took a swift raft ride of the lower river to Heidelberg, plowing the raft into a bridge . “Blazing hot in train.” They stopped at Friedrich [note: I can find no reference to what or where is Friedrich] . From Sam’s notebook:
“Took a bath at Friedrich. In Evening to bed early, with the new home magazines [July Harper’s, and Atlantic] which I had saved all day & wouldn’t cut a leaf. Twichell the ass, writes & goes to the music. I lie & smoke & am wise” [MTNJ 2: 134].
Livy, the children and the rest of the Clemens party had already gone on to Lucerne,
