March 2 Saturday – In Cambridge, Mass., Howells sent Sam a postcard asking if “Saturday of next week” would “do for that projected visit?” [MTHL 1: 221].

Bayard Taylor wrote on a small note card: “Hearty thanks for your kind congratulations! I mean to go by the Holsatia, if the Govt will allow me that much time at home. The Captain is an old friend of mine and would be unhappy if I did not sail with him. I saw your name in the book, which is another inducement. But I daren’t positively engage passage until after the Senate has acted. Always…” [MTP].
