Yesterday Rosa was in the castle grounds with the children, two ladies one English the other German sitting on a seat spoke to them, after a little asked their name, where they were from etc., etc. then she said “Clemens, why could that be Mark Twain?”—Rosa told them that it was, then the lady said to Susy, “I wish you would tell your papa that I have enjoyed his books very much”—No one in the hotel knows who Mr. Clemens is—we are having as quiet a life as we could possibly desire—The ladies asked the children if they could not sing some English songs, so they sang “Grandfather’s Clock,” “I have a Savior,” “Ring the Bells of Heaven” and Rosa said she saw tears in one of the ladies eyes…[Salsbury 77].
