1 New York Tribune, May 31, 1875.
2 The New York Tribune, June 1, went so far as to say of the letter, ‘It has shown to all intelligent people his desire for a third term and his utter unfitness for it.’ Estimates of General Grant's character as a civil magistrate may be found in the New York Nation, March 1, 1877. Dec. 6, 1878, July 30, 1885 (by J. D. Cox); New York Evening Post, July 1, 1870; New York Tribune, Oct. 16, 30, 31, 1872, March 3, 1877.
3 Among Republicans openly protesting in 1880 against General Grant's candidacy were President Woolsey, Thurlow Weed, Murat Hastead, E. R. Hoar, Henry L. Pierce, Rev. Henry W. Bellows, and Rev. James Freeman Clarke. For articles and opinions adverse to a third term, see New York Nation, Aug. 22, 1878, Oct. 16, 1879; Boston Transcript, Jan. 21, 1880 (containing opinions of college presidents); and address of General John B. Henderson at St. Louis, April 10, 1880.
