March – Sam’s short story, “The Loves of Alonzo Fitz Clarence and Rosannah Ethelton,” ran in the Atlantic Monthly [Wells, 22]. It also ran on the front page of the Hartford Courant on Feb. 16 []

Most of the month was occupied with packing, making quick visits to the Langdons and the Cranes in Elmira and to Sam’s mother, and sister in Fredonia. Livy began making lists of purchases commissioned by family and friends. She wrote measurements of the Hartford house with ideas for furniture and frou frou to bring back. Her memoranda book was set up as a ledger, with totals on each page [MTNJ 2: 42-3].

Sam’s notebook: “The First German Principia /—A First German Course” referred to A First German Course (1856) which was part of a series “on the plan of Dr. William Smith’s ‘Principia Latina’” –one of the books Sam used to study German [MTNJ 2: 54n22].
