It is just possible that Sherman's coming to grief might not be disagreeable to him. That General has already acquiredSherman's coming to grief might not be disagreeable to him. That General has already acquired so much of glory as to become a dangerous rival as a candidate for the next Presidency — a reason sufficient to prevent Grant's regretting any ill luck that may now befall him.
