at which we will arrive, and the hour in time. Yours Truly, U. S. Grant. Gen. A. Badeau. Letter no. Twenty-two. This note was written at my consular office, where General Grant called to see me, and not finding me there scribbled these lines on my official paper. I had invited him and Mrs. Grant to a little box I occupied eight or ten miles from London. He was staying at the Bristol Hotel. Sir Edward Watkins was the Chairman (President as Americans call it), of the London, Chatham & Dover Railway Company, and had offered the hospitality of his road whenever General Grant traveled over it; as in fact did most of the railroad companies in England. Consulate-General of the United States for great Britain and Ireland, London, Oct. 18th, 1877. E. C. Dear General,—I just returned this A. M. from Birmingham. The reception there was extremely flattering, and the speeches showed not only present warmth of sentiment for America but that it had been the same during t

. have a magnificent mine, managed by a thoroughly competent and honest man. It is so opened that they will get out all there is in it in the most economical manner, and the dividends will be regular, subject to no vicissitudes except strikes, epidemics or earthquakes. I go on Saturday to the Garrison and probably from there to the San Juan region. That visit over I will have seen a large part of the Mining region. My family are all well. Buck is with me and Fred is on his way between Santa Fe and here. The climate of this place is perfect. While you are sweltering in New York cloth clothing is comfortable here. All desire to be remembered to you. Yours Truly, U. S. Grant. Letter no. Sixty-one. At the close of this letter, Grant alludes to the joke of one of the rebel soldiers in Sherman's Atlanta campaign. It was proposed to blow up a tunnel on the road over which Sherman brought his supplies. Oh h—ll, exclaimed the Confederate, Don't you know that Sherman carr

ur book will necessarily be criticised, but criticism will do no harm so long as your facts are right. My opinion is that Young's publication of table talks will add many thousands to the number of readers of your book. People will look to that as the authentic views which I entertain. The other will be looked upon as hastily noted recollections of what was said in conversation without the data at hand to speak with entire accuracy. I shall remain here some eight days more and then in Salzburg for ten days or more. My next address after that will be in Paris though but for a short time. I wrote Washburne a letter telling him the outrageous stories ——had told me about him * * * * Very Truly Yours, U. S. Grant. Gen. A. Badeau. Letter no. Forty-three. This letter continues the supply of information Grant was furnishing me in regard to the history of Sherman's March to the Sea. I had written for an explanation of certain dispatches which he could not recall. It was

. Gen. A. Badeau. Letter no. Eighteen. In June, 1877, General Grant arrived at Liverpool and proceeded by Manchester to London. From this time I was constantly with him. The month of June and part of July were passed principally in London. I have already described the dinners of the Queen and the Prince of Wales, and told of the Court Ball, and the Reception at the house of the United States Minister. Besides this, dinners were offered him by the Princess Louise and the Marquis of Lorne, the Prime Minister, Lord Beaconsfield, by the Dukes of Devonshire and Wellington, the Marquis of Ripon, the Earls of Derby, Carnarvon, and Dunraven, the Master of Trinity and Lord Houghton, and many others. Mr. Pierrepont invited the Prince of Wales to meet him at dinner; I gave him an evening party and a dinner; Mr. Smalley, the correspondent of the New York Tribune, invited him to breakfast, and Mr. Russell Young, of the New York Herald, to dinner; the Reform Club and the United Service

write often myself. Yours Truly, U. S. Grant. Gen'l A. Badeau, Consul, etc. Letter no. Seven. The article for the British press referred to in this letter was a comparison between the War of the Rebellion and that between Germany and France in 1870. It was written for Frazer's Magazine at the request of the editor, Mr. Froude, and of course had the sanction of the President and the Secretary of State. I have not stricken out the sentences referring to the Adams family, although thers about the movements before Petersburg. I had also asked whether the General had thought to write to Mr. Pierrepont after his visit at the Minister's house, and the efforts of Pierrepont to make the stay in London successful. Paris, France, Nov. 27th 1877. Dear Badeau,—I met Mr. Lincoln at Ft. Monroe the day after the Mine explosion. I do not think anything was said about putting Sheridan in command of the Army in the Field under Hunter. Having sent the majority of Sheridan's

nt. Letter no. Sixty. For months after his defeat at Chicago, Grant was turning over in his mind the business he should adopt; considering many offers and examining various enterprises, as the next letter shows very fully. Manitou Springs, Col., July 28th, 1880. Dear Badeau,—Your letter of the 18th of July, with chapter enclosed, only reached me on the 26th, at Leadville. I have read the chapter over carefully and see nothing to criticise. In your letter you say that you seherman's Atlanta campaign. It was proposed to blow up a tunnel on the road over which Sherman brought his supplies. Oh h—ll, exclaimed the Confederate, Don't you know that Sherman carries duplicate tunnels with him on this march? Manitou Springs, Col., Aug. 12th, 1880. My dear General,—I returned here day before yesterday and found a mail awaiting me which has required all my spare time until now just to read. In it I find your two letters, and the first part of the chapter on Fort<

ou. Very Truly, U. S. Grant. Letter no. Fifty-one. The reference at the beginning of this letter is to the account of Early's failure in Sheridan's campaign in the Valley, in my Military History. The long interval between this letter and its predecessor makes me believe that some of General Grant's communications miscarried. He was at this time hardly ever a month without writing to me. The reference to the British Government has been explained in Chapter XXXV. Nagasaki, Japan, June 22d 1879 My dear General,—The two enclosed chapters were received at Tientsin China just on the eve of my departure from there, so I brought them here to mail. The last chapter I think is one of the best in the book. It shows Early in an unpleasant light and shows the Southern character—for lying—as it should be shown. I have no corrections to suggest in either chapter. My visit through China was a pleasant one though the country presents no attractions to invite the visi<

d I should have answered it before you got away. What I wanted particularly to say—and now do say — is that I will not regard your declination of the Mission to Brussels for the present. I presume Jones will not return to Brussels, though under the letter which he received when his resignation was tendered he can do so. His housBrussels, though under the letter which he received when his resignation was tendered he can do so. His household goods, &c., were sent home in advance. If he does not return the mission will still 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 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 <
New England (United States) (search for this): chapter 50
This is a most beautiful country, and a most interesting people. The progress they have made in their changed civilization within twelve years is almost incredible. They have now Military and Naval Academies, Colleges, Academies, Engineering schools, schools of science and free schools, for male & female, as thoroughly organized, and on as high a basis of instruction, as any country in the world. Travel in the interior is as safe for an unarmed, unprotected foreigner as it is in the New England States. Much safer from extortion. This is marvelous when the treatment their people—and all eastern peoples—receive at the hands of the average foreigner residing among them [is considered]. I have never been so struck with the heartlessness of Nations as well as individuals as since coming to the east. But a day of retribution is sure to come. These people are becoming strong and China is sure to do so also. When they do a different policy will have to prevail from that enforced no

and Tokio, fitted up for our accommodation. Mrs. Grant, Fred & Young—dubbed the Commodore—join me in kindest regards to you. It looks now as if we would leave for home about the 10th of August. 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 At the end of the first year abroad I was quite homesick, but determined to remain to see every country in Europe at least. Now at the end of twenty-six months I dread going back, and would not if there was a line of steamers between here and Australia. But I shall go to my quiet little home in Galena and remain there until the cold drives me away. Then I will probably go south—possibly to Havana & Mexico—to remain until April. Mrs. Grant, Fred, & Young desire to be specially remembered to
