Sunday, August 21, 1853: Sam departed Chicago on what would, in 1855, become the Michigan Southern and Northern Indiana railway, the Northern Indiana Road and the Michigan Southern Railroad. He wrote that he had the whole day as a layover. Reports are that he departed at 9 p.m. Also, Powers writes that he went first to Toledo and then to Monroe. I am dubious suspect that he went straight through Adrian, did not veer to the southeast but went directly east to Monroe.
