so ready to move—plan and all—that I gave him no order whatever except the authority to move. He is entitled to all the credit of his great victory, and it established him in the confidence of the President & Sec. of War as a commander to be trusted with the fullest discretion in the management all the troops under him. Before that, while they highly appreciated him as a commander to execute they felt a little nervous about giving him too much discretion. We leave here on Thursday for Amsterdam; Saturday for Hanover, Monday following for Berlin. How long I will stay in Berlin I cannot say but probably until the following Saturday. We will then go to Copenhagen, breaking the journey at Hamburg. You might send anything you have for me, direct according to this programme. We will stay in Copenhagen for several days and then go direct to Norway, thence to Sweden. I am glad to see that you are getting on so well with Vol. II. It looks now as if it might be out the coming fall.

My family are all well and join in respects to you. Please remember me kindly to Mr. Motley and his family. Yours Truly, U. S. Grant. Letter no. Six. This letter shows the exactness of the statements made by Grant's friends that Motley's removal was not occasioned by Sumner's action in regard to St. Domingo. He did not of course suppose when he wrote this familiar letter that it would ever become an historical document, but for that very reason it furnishes incontestable proof on the disputed point. The second paragraph refers to my bonds as ConsulGen-eral at London. Those who had arranged to become my bondsmen were absent when I received the appointment, and I started for England before the bonds were filed.

ily, although Grant must have subsequently modified his opinion, for it was after this that he appointed Charles Francis Adams arbitrator for the United States at Geneva; and I know that he highly appreciated the services there rendered to the country by that distinguished statesman and diplomatist. The remarks in regard to Butake it short—Everything in the country looks politically well at present. The most serious apprehension is from the awards that may be made by the commissions at Geneva and in Washington. Should they go largely in favor of the English it would at least cause much disappointment.—In speaking of political matters I do not of cours 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

Your statement is correct that I was not on the field when Warren carried the Weldon road nor at his Ream's Station battle. I have given up my visit to Spain for this winter. On Saturday of this week we start for Nice, stopping over Sunday at Lyons, and over Tuesday at Marseilles. From Nice we will take the Vandalia—naval vessel—and sail along the Mediterranean. Just our stopping places will be determined after we go aboard. All my family are well and join in best regards to you, and wishes for your health and prosperity. Whether Jesse goes with us will depend upon a letter he hopes to receive from Cornell University. I rather think however his mother will insist upon his going. Yours Truly, U. S. Grant. Letter no.

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 tone out this evening. I could not answer until now—nearly midnight. The cattle raid took place while I was away from City Point. I cannot call to memory the time of my visit to Burlington to see after the children's schooling; but Mrs. Grant neve Fifty-three.
