While tracking the trains between Fort Wayne, Lafayette, and 
Indianapolis, I became confused over the Day  By Day entries for 
February 6 and 7.  It appears that both "Chronology of Known Mark Twain 
Speeches,..." and "Touring with Cable and Huck" missed the Lafayette 
Lecture on February 6th of 1885.  Gary Scharnhorst did not.  What caused 
me to stumble was the February 6th DBD entry that goes on to describe 
the February 7th lecture in Indianapolis and then the February 7th entry 
that notes Sam had to get up a 7am to take the train to Indianapolis.  
Why would he need to do that if he was already in Indianapolis?
