Do you have a chapter for this question? I have a searchable text, but I am not finding a reference to the men actually bathing in the river.

the idea of taking a bath in the river didn't seem very tempting when the morning arrived. the water looked damp and chilly, cold winds blew. Harris wanted to see who would go first for a bath, but there was no rush in doing so. Harris's opinion was that it would be impossible to get back to the boat after a bath. Montmorency gave an involuntary howl about the idea.

the narrator neither had any intention to swim nor liked the idea. but he accidentally falls into the water and pretends to enjoy the bath. he persuades George and Harris to join him but Harris admired his pluck and George showed concerned for the writer. none of them join the writer.
