Thank you Ben Griffin for a fascinating analysis of "San Fransisco Swimming

I observe that the Evans and Twain figures are drawn in a slightly more
detailed caricature than the others. They are not casting shadows (unlike
all the other figures in the foreground), Also,  Evans' left pant leg
reveals some of the background floor texture. So I wonder if Jump could
have added the two figures later?

That might resolve the "one apparent obstacle to finding Mark Twain in
Jump's picture is Evan's own claim that Twain is not in it" and Ben's
observation that "It is odd that Evans omits to mention that he himself has
the honor of being caricatured in the "Bath."
