July 6 Saturday – In Saranac Lake, N.Y. Sam wrote to Florence Hayward, answering her question about a photograph of him made by H. Walter Barnett , London. “The photograph was made by Barnett, 1 Park Side, Hyde Park Corner. You need to authority from me; he will let you have it without that. / It was a good speech you made, & does you credit.” He closed by saying Livy thought she had one of the photos in question but they were stored in trunks in N.Y.C. [MTP].

Several photographs of Mark Twain, including one rowing a long canoe on Lower Lake Saranac, were taken this day. [MTCI 399: W.B. Northrup’s With Pen and Camera (1904)]. Note: Northrup’s interview with Twain ran on July 21 in the New York World.
