tained, lest it should be made public too soon; but Stanton was within his rights, and the subject was never broached in their correspondence or conversation. At every serious point their harmony was undisturbed. This is the statement General Grant always made to me. Until the last year of his life he expected and intended my history of his campaigns to be the final authorized expression of his views, and whatever I wrote for that history was submitted to his inspection. In the winter of 1879 I sent him my account of his relations with Stanton which is similar to that now given; he found nothing to correct, but replied from Naples, December 18th: Your chapter on Stanton is the best pen picture of a historical character I ever read. I venture to predict that it will be so considered by others when it comes before the public. In November, 1864, I accompanied Grant to Washington from City Point. It was at a time when Stanton's enemies and rivals were making every effort to procu
has known all about it. If the work should be withheld, the public might say that there was an object in that. I would go on as fast as possible, and when the book is ready publish it. Let the public say what they please. In the early part of 1879 he left Europe for the last time. I accompanied him as far as Marseilles, where he took a steamer for the East, and up to that day he had said no word to me, nor, I am confident, to any other human being, defining his intentions or desires in reg was said or written to him in a hundred forms by the men who wished his renomination and thought themselves sufficiently intimate or important to offer their views. But he paid no attention to the advice, and returned to America in the autumn of 1879, nearly a year before the Presidential election, and more than six months sooner than his supporters desired. The reason he always assigned for this was that Mrs. Grant wanted to see her children. He himself was far from being tired of travel.
appointed Consul-General at London. Of course, the courtesy was intended for the President, although it gratified and benefited me. In 1877 I accompanied General Grant in his first visit to Switzerland, and at Geneva, a son of Mr. Blaine was often in his company, and always welcome in his apartments or at his table. The young man bore civil messages from his father to General Grant, which were cordially reciprocated in my hearing. It was not until the return of Grant to this country, in 1879, that there was any ill feeling between the predestined rivals. But the especial opposition to General Grant's candidacy for a third term came from the friends of Blaine; and in the preliminary canvass all the ordinary resources of political warfare were called into play. Many things were said of General Grant that were disagreeable to him, and personal accusations were made against his character that touched him keenly; perhaps he felt them more acutely after the lavish compliments that ha
t ever fell from him on the subject was to repress or repel the suggestion. He was resting from national cares, and in the unwonted enjoyment of a private competence. He told me that in December for the first time in his life he had a bank account from which he could draw as freely as he desired. He was generous in gifts to his children, but never luxurious in his personal habits. He had only two expenses of his own,—his horses and his cigars. When General Grant returned from Europe in 1879, his entire fortune amounted to one hundred thousand dollars, and the income of this sum just paid his expenses at the hotel where he and Mrs. Grant occupied two rooms. He kept no carriage. Finding that he could not live in New York suitably to his position, he began to consider what other residence he should select or what means of support. His son Ulysses was engaged in the banking business with Ferdinand Ward and James D. Fish, and supposed he had accumulated four hundred thousand dolla

But I may change my mind and go back to visit Australia, and some other places left out, and go back by the Sandwich Islands. In this case we will not reach San Francisco before March. Yours Truly, U. S. Grant. Gen. A. Badeau. Letter no. Fifty-two. I see nothing to add to this letter by way of explanation or elucidation. It tells its own story. Tokio, Japan, July 16″ 1879. My dear General:—Your letter inclosing the chapter on Hatcher's Run reached me last night. I have read it carefully and see nothing to correct unless it might be to let Warren off a little lighter. But in that respect do as you please for I think you are entirely correct. We have now been in Japan for nearly a month. The country is most beautiful and the people charming. There is nothing they are prouder of than their institutions of learning, from their common schools up to the hi<
