The basic source for the following names is “List of PASSENGERS—‘Quaker City,’” printed at St. George, Bermuda, the ship’s last port of call before reaching New York. One copy of this document, originally owned and annotated by Bloodgood H. Cutter, is at the Mark Twain Memorial (CtHMTH). A photocopy of the second, owned and annotated by William R. Denny, is at the University of Virginia (ViU). Denny wrote across the top of his copy, “A correct list of the passengers of the ‘Quaker City’ steam ship, in their excursion to the East.” Following the list of names, the roster concluded: “—Total 74, or, with the addition of Miss Langdon who joins them here, a total of 75. A few of these, however, left the ship at Alexandria or elsewhere.” Miss Langdon was Julia L. Langdon, no relation to Charles (Julia L. Langdon Barber to Clemens, 18 Jan 1907, CU-MARK). She, Stephen and Louisa Griswold, Louis McDonald, and M. A. Serfaty were among those who joined the ship after its first arrival at Gibraltar. The number of passengers departing New York on 8 June was therefore no greater than seventy.
The text of the printed roster has been amended to give full names whenever possible—information derived from various documentary sources cited elsewhere in this volume, as well as from signatures and notations on the passengers’ cartes de visite collected by Denny (Hirst 1975, 390–412). The names of the crew have been supplied chiefly from “Excursion to the Holy Land,” New York Tribune, 8 June 67, 8, with spelling corrections from other primary documents.
