From Hill, 1973:

The Clemens family booked passage on the Prince Oscar and left the Villa di Quarto on June 20, stopping for four days at the Hôtel de Ville in Florence. ...

The family boarded the ship June 28, ...

Then, as the Prince Oscar was preparing to leave, Clemens discovered that the death certificate and consular papers were missing.... the Hamburg-American Steamship Company had forwarded these documents to New York by an earlier ship, ...

The Prince Oscar docked in New York on the evening of July 12, with a special directive from President Roosevelt and the entire Cabinet to allow the family immediate passage through customs.  The Clemenses went to the Wolcott Hotel, and Isabel Lyon, her mother, and the Italian housemaid Teresa Cherubini, who had come with the group, went to the St. Denis.
