Accordingly the matter was arranged thrto offer to vindicate his fame from such aspersions now, but a letter that he wrote me on the subject will nevertheless be interesting. On the 27th of July, he said: I am just this day in receipt of two letters from you of the latter part of June. Why they have been so long coming I cannot conceive. A few days after your letters were written, as you know, the dastardly attempt was made upon the President's life. This of course has put a stop to all communications on the subject of forei

The modern Belisarius did not mean to beg. In June he went to Long Branch for the summer, and soon afterward sent for me and showed me a few pages he had written and called an article.

A new chapter in the disease was begun. He was able now to drive out, and dictated, and sometimes wrote, at intervals during the month of May and the earlier days of June. His interest in his work seemed keener than ever. It doubtless gave him strength to make a new fight — a hopeless one, he felt before long, so far as recovery was concerned.
