nt's business relations with Gould at that time warranted him in making the request. He did apply to Gould, who referred him to Dr. Norvin Green, the President of the Western Union, as well as of the Cuban Telegraph Company. General Grant made the application to Dr. Green, who paid no attention to his request, and the place with its powers and appurtenances remained in the hands of an Englishman. New York City, Dec. 11th, 1882. My dear General Badeau,—I have your letter of the 1st instant, enclosing one from Hughes and also your previous letter. I did not write to you before because I expected to see your Vice-Consul, Williams, but he has not called on me yet. Of course I will help you if I can to obtain the appointment you ask. In regard to the matter Hughes speaks of, I wrote the letter he requested long ago, just after you spoke to me about possibly the second time, and in time I should think for them to have received it, and informed their father before the date of hi
tatement of the points he had visited in the preceding summer after I left him at Ragatz. This I wanted for some such purpose as that of the present volume. The last sentence in this letter refers to the promise of President Hayes to retain me at the Consulate General at London. Grant had heard that several aspirants were attempting to supplant me, and therefore had written to General Sherman on the subject. Paris, Nov. 9th 1877. Dear General,—In answer to your letter of the 5th inst. I cannot give you definite information as to dates when Mrs. Grant visited me at City Point. She went there however soon after my Headquarters were established there. She returned to Burlington, N. J. after a short visit to arrange for the children's schooling, and went back to City Point where she remained,—with the exception of one or two short visits to N. J.—until Lee's surrender and my return to the National Capital. Mrs. Grant made a short visit to me—the first time after leaving
ill be tendered to you,—and I hope you with Mrs. Badeau, may enjoy it. Of course I can not know, or even surmise, why you did not wish . . . . But this will all be right very soon and I know you will then prefer a Mission to a Consulate. I am not giving advice but doing what I think you will be glad of on second reflection. If I am mistaken you can decline the Mission when it reaches you. My family, and your friends here at the Branch, are all well. Buck sails from Liverpool on the 8th inst., so that I hope you may meet him before he starts. Please remember me to Gen. Schenck & daughters. Very Truly Yours, U. S. Grant. Gen. A. Badeau. Letter no. Fourteen. This telegram is in reply to one from me, asking for information in regard to General W. F. Smith's report of the battle of Cold Harbor, for my Military History of Grant: [Telegram.] Washington, Nov. 1, 1876. Gen. Badeau, U. S. Consul-General London: No report from Smith after June 4th. U. S. Grant
and possibly the biographical part of my book ready by that time. I do not expect to be in the city, to stop, before the last of September. Fred has not gone west yet, and may not go. Yours Truly, U. S. Grant. Letter no. One hundred and three. I had made some suggestions in regard to the publication of his work, in which, as I have intimated, I was to have a pecuniary interest; and this letter is his reply: Sept. 13th, 1884. Dear Badeau,—I have your letter of the 9th instant. There will be time enough to make the arrangements for publication when my book is completed. Rosswell Smith has been here to see. There will be no difficulty about the publication at any time if they are to be the publishers. My own opinion is that they would be the best publishers. But I will make no committal until about the time for publication. I find that firm has emancipated itself from the General Agency for the sale of books and procuring advertisements which enables them t
are, more often than not, reversed by the verdict of to-morrow. Dec. 19, 1878. My dear General,—I have your letter of the 17th, with Sherman's to you enclosed. I also received one from you at Pau, and one before the present one here in Paris. I should have written to you earlier but I found so many letters to answer that I deferred. It is impossible yet for me to say when we will get off for our trip around the world. The steamer on which we are to sail left the states on the 10th of this month. If she crosses the Atlantic under sail it will be about the last of JanY before she will be ready for us. If she steams over it may be as early as the 12th. Mrs. Grant & I want to see Nellie before we go, and have written asking her to come here. She answers fearing that she may not be able to come, but has written Mr. Sartoris, who is in Ireland, for his opinion. If she does not come we will likely take a run over to London for a few days. I will let you know by telegraph
contained in the following letter. It is hardly necessary to say that Mr. Evarts was Secretary of State, and Colonel John Hay, AssistantSecre-tary under President Hayes. New York City, Dec. 4th 1880. Dear Badeau,—I would advise that you drop a private note to Asst. Sec. Hay saying that you would like to have your leave extended to about the 20th, or last of Jan. to insure getting your book in the hands of the printer before leaving. I will be going to Washington on Monday the 13th inst. and will speak to Hay, or Evarts, to have your leave extended if you wish. It is a pity the book cannot be out by the holidays. Business is then suspended and many persons might read it who later will not have the time. Sincerely Yours, U. S. Grant. Letter no. Sixty-four. This note was written immediately after the inauguration of Garfield, in March, 1881. Grant was still in no actual business, and his means, as I have said, were limited; he had no secretary, and the accumu
referred to the Court of Claims, as I have already explained. General Sickles, as well as myself, had been retired by President Grant in order to enable him to accept diplomatic rank, and he had written to General Grant to obtain some information in regard to the General's action as President. The letter was not answered promptly, and General Sickles inquired of me if it had been received. New York City, June 21st, 1883. Dear General,—I am just in receipt of your letter of the 16th inst. I have been absent from the city most of the time for six or seven weeks, returning for a couple of days twice during the time. General Sickles wrote me a letter on the subject referred to in yours during these absences. Mails accumulated so that I did not get to his letter until some time after it was written. I then found a second letter from him, on a different subject, and answered both in one letter. I have not heard from him since, but hope my letter was satisfactory. When you
myself upon him. Warsash, Oct. 5th 1877. Dear Gen.,—I enclose you two cards of invitation to the Merchant Tailors' feast which you may accept formally. I have already informed them informally, in reply to a note sent to ascertain if I could attend, that I would be in London on the 18th of Oct. My plans from now until we go to the Continent are about complete, and if you will be kind enough you may arrange accordingly. On Monday the 15th we will be in London: on Wednesday, the 17th, I would like to go to Birmingham to return the next day evening. On Saturday—the 20th—we go to Brighton to be the guests of Capt. Ashbury until the following Tuesday. We then return to London and will go to Paris on the 24th. I am amazed at what you say about . . . but are you sure he has made any such statements as you quote? Everything I have said in his presence—or elsewhere—disproves his statements if he has made them. You have been of incalculable help to me, and your presence
with his own, and because Arthur was unwilling to seem too much under his influence. Grant frequently said to me that at this time his friendship was a detriment to me, as it provoked many enmities which I might otherwise have escaped; and in the eyes of Mr. Arthur, it was, he thought, especially a disadvantage; for Arthur was then most anxious to propitiate Grant's enemies. New York City, Feb'y 28th, 1883. My dear General Badeau,—I was much pleased to receive your letter of the 22d inst. I was tempted to give what you say about the use of Mexican tobacco; its use in Cuba; the feeling of the Cubans in regard to the effect of the treaty &c. to the press. Of course I should only have given it as from a friend of mine writing from Havana. But on reflection I concluded that the public would know who my friend in Cuba was, so I concluded not to. I wish however you would write the same thing to the State Dept. You will learn by the mail that carries this that consideration of
ening. On Saturday—the 20th—we go to Brighton to be the guests of Capt. Ashbury until the following Tuesday. We then return to London and will go to Paris on the 24th. I am amazed at what you say about . . . but are you sure he has made any such statements as you quote? Everything I have said in his presence—or elsewhere—disvel and crowd of engagements the proper recognition was sometimes overlooked. Torquay, Oct. 9th 1877. Dear General,—I shall leave London for Paris on the 24th. The Saturday preceding we go to Brighton to remain until the following Tuesday. You see by a letter returned to me—and which I sent to you, that I answered Mr. that I had been ill from the effects of the climate. Long Branch, N. J., Aug. 27th, 1883. Dear Badeau,—I am just now in receipt of your letter of the 24th inst. It is the first I had heard of your arrival though I supposed you were some place in the Catskills. Jesse and family expect to go to the Kaaterskill hou
