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 Cairo—at Corinth, next at Jackson, Tenn then at Memphis where I left her when I went to Young's Point, at Young's Point one or two days before running the Vicksburg Batteries, and at Vicksburg after the surrender. She again visited me at Nashville. On leaving Ragatz we traveled to Bale, Switzerland, lay over Sunday there; thence to Strasburg where we stopped f

Like in New York city we may find people from every known part of the world. The party are all well and join me in kindest regards to you. Please present my compliments to Mr. & Miss Welsh and Mr. Hoppin. Yours Truly, U. S. Grant. Letter no. Fifty. Calcutta, March 15th 1879. Dear Badeau,—We have now done India from Bombay to Delhi and back to this place. We leave here to-morrow morning for Singapore, by a regular steamer, the Richmond not having put in an appearance yet. Our visit to India has been a most delightful one. The English people have exceeded themselves in hospitalities. No where but at one place have we been permitted to stop at a hotel, and there—Jubulpore — it was because no official had the spare room for our accommodation. The railroad officials have been equally attentive giving us all through

C. Dear General,—I le to come, but has written Mr. Sartoris, who is in Ireland, for his opinion. If she does not come we will lik on the subject. It is certain that I cannot go to Ireland—that is, leave here for there—before the second of ll not go to London therefore unless I should go to Ireland. You had better come over here therefore, and, if of JanY I will know positively whether I can go to Ireland. With kindest regards of Mrs. Grant & myself, ght. I accompanied General Grant on his visit to Ireland, which lasted about a week. He went first to Dubli We will not stop more than one day at any place in Ireland, and must be back here by Saturday, the 11th of Janne.

and I can very well afford it because Taylor's was a deadly attack upon two now dead-Lincoln & Stanton—and Welles upon two dead persons—Stanton and Halleck—all untrue—the attacks—and I feel it a duty to relieve all three of aspersions so unjust to their memories. We are going all the time and I am becoming very tired of it. Think we will leave several weeks earlier than we expected. Our contemplated route, as you know, is to the Hague, Copenhagen, through Sweden, Norway, then back to St. Petersburg, through Prussia & Austria to quarters for next winter. All send regards to you. I shall write to Babcock in a few days. Yours Truly, U. S. Grant. Letter no. Thirty-seven. General Townsend, then Adjutant-General of the Army, had reported to the Secretary of War, without due examination, and without any inquiry of me, that I did not come within the provisions of the law allowing certain retired officers to accept diplomatic rank, and in consequence my name had been stric

ty of Oxford offered him a degree; and the City of London presented him with its freedom. Early in July he visited Belgium, and afterward passed up the Rhine to Switzerland and Northern Italy. At Brussels, Frankfort, Cologne, Geneva, and Berne he was the object of public or official courtesies. The Grand Duke of Baden invited him to his villa near Constance, and Garibaldi sent him a message of welcome while he was at Varese. At Ragatz I left him for a week to arrange for his tour in Scotland. The Dukes of Sutherland and Argyll had asked me to bring him to them if he went as far north as their seats of Inverary and Dunrobin, and I now wrote to them to propose his visits. In a few days he arrived in England and at once went to Edinburgh and the Highlands, even extending his trip to John O'Groat's House, the extreme northern point of the island. By October he had returned to the south of England, stopping at Glasgow, Newcastle, Sheffield, Leeds, Sunderland, Leamington, Stratfor

I have seen all I want of Paris and but for engagements ahead would leave with he wished made of them. Hotel Bristol, Paris, Nov. 17th 1877. Dear General,—Your letter to make the stay in London successful. Paris, France, Nov. 27th 1877. Dear Badeau,—I metance. After that anything directed to Drexel, Paris will reach me. But it is likely you will have haps it was too much like our own. Paris, France, May 19th, 1878. My dear General,—I retr more. My next address after that will be in Paris though but for a short time. I wrote Washbucompletion of his military history. Paris, France, Oct. 3d 1878. Dear General,—Your letter us. Hoping to see you either in London or Paris before our departure, I am as always, Yours Grant, and Mr. Borie. I returned with him to Paris, and accompanied him to Marseilles, from which[26 more.
lic business prevents my being present to present the bride and congratulate you in person as I had expected to do. U. S. Grant. Letter no. Thirteen. Before leaving America I declined the mission to Belgium for personal reasons, which are referred to in the omitted portion of this letter. General Grant, however, knew that I had originally desired a diplomatic appointment, and he had always promised me one. The promise had indeed been kept, for in 1870 he offered me the mission to Uruguay and Paraguay, when I preferred to be Consul-General at London; but now he proposed Belgium, and pressed the place on me, even after I had declined it. My appointment was made out and sent to me in London, together with the letter of credentials to the King, without any further notice than this letter, which indeed only reached me in England. But my chief and friend persisted in his kindness. Long Branch, N. J., July 5th 1875. Dear General,—Your letter written a few days before y

eminent British soldier and military critic, in India, and the letter and lecture which he forwarded contained some highly favorable comments on my history as well as on Grant's career. Lieutenant Green of the Engineer Corps, was engaged at this time in the preparation of a short history of the Vicksburg campaign, and during the summer he had read a part of it to General Grant in my presence, to invite remark. It is to this work that General Grant refers in the following letter: N. Y., Sept. 21st 1882. Dear Badeau,—We moved to the city yesterday. I find in my desk your letters inclosing one from Colonel Chesney—herewith returned—and his lecture. I will read the latter when I go home this evening. Green was at my house, at the Branch, Monday evening and read the second part of his book. He will be up early next week to finish it. He has found a probable error of 4,000 in his statement of numbers at Vicksburg. The tri-monthly returns for the end of Ap'l, and the m<

of back pay while holding, or wishing to hold the Consul-Generalship. It would furnish a pretext for your removal. I think you ought to hurry up Volume II, however and get advantage of the present desire to collect war reminiscences. We are all well. Very Truly Yours, U. S. Grant. Gen. A. Badeau. Consul-General, etc. Letter no. Forty-five. It had been repeatedly stated by hostile critics that Grant intended after the battle of the Wilderness, to march on Gordonsville, in Central Virginia; and I had found the dispatches on which those assertions were probably founded. I knew, because I was with him at the time, that he had no intention to make this movement, but I wrote to ask his own explanation or construction of the orders. His reply, it will be seen, corroborated my own memory. These confidential communications to me, I have said before, are always given in full, exactly as he wrote them, even with the little inaccuracies of familiar correspondence. He never caut

can best come before my departure. By the second of JanY I will know positively whether I can go to Ireland. With kindest regards of Mrs. Grant & myself, Yours Very Truly, U. S. Grant. Letter no. Forty-eight. I accompanied General Grant on his visit to Ireland, which lasted about a week. He went first to Dublin, where he was entertained by the Viceroy, (the Duke of Marlborough), at the Vice-Regal Lodge, and at dinner by the Chief Secretary; thence he proceeded to Belfast, Londonderry, and the North; but he was unable to go to the West or South; the civic authorities of Cork refused to invite him officially, because of some utterances hostile to the Catholics while he was President, which those functionaries resented. This was the only instance of the kind that occurred to Grant in Europe or Asia. Nearly every city in the United Kingdom had welcomed him officially and presented him with its freedom, but Cork preferred to be singular. Paris, France, Dec. 28th 1
