North America: 1895 - Elmira to Buffalo

Mark Twain, his wife Livy and daughter Clara, along with his manager Major Pond and his wife, travel from Elmira, New York to Buffalo, New York on the Delaware Lackawanna and Western Railroad. This is the beginning of his 1895 journey around the world.

Thanks to Thomas J. Reigstad, Emeritus Professor of English SUNY Buffalo State for publishing his review of "Chasing the Last Laugh". That's how I found out that Twain went to Buffalo and not to Salamanca.
