To the members of the Twain list,
    I am traveling in Sweden and took a side-trip today to Sanna; I
wanted to see if there were any commemorations of the time Twain spent
there between July and September, 1899, consulting with Dr. Heinrich
Kellgren about the health of his daughter Jean.
    When I Googld-mapped Sanna, Sweden, the town that came up was a tiny
village off Lake Vattern, near Askersund.  When I explored the area, I
could find no evidence of Kellgren's clinic or of the house Twain and
his family lived in.
    Could anyone with more information on this subject tell me (1) if
Google gave me the right Sanna--perhaps there's a different one? (2) if
it's the case that all traces of Twain's presence here have been
effaced.  (I had a couple of tips from librarians in the area, but
nothing reliable).
     Thanks for any help you can give me.
Christopher Morris
