ton and Fortress Monroe. At this time the Government had decided on a course toward Cuba directly the opposite of that which I had advised, and one that seemed to me most disadvantageous to American interests, while it grossly neglected American citizens, who were frequently fined and imprisoned without cause. I had also reported culpable frauds at the Consulate which the State Department failed to investigate; and I became anxious to give up the post. A vacancy occurred in the mission to Russia, and I asked General Grant whether it would be advisable for him to solicit the appointment for me. This letter is his reply. The 3d of June was the date fixed for the assembling of the Presidential Nominating Convention at Chicago. United Bank building, Wall St. & Broadway, New York, March 3, 1884. My dear General Badeau,—Your dispatch was duly received and an answer returned saying letter by mail.—Under the circumstances it is impossible for me to comply with your request. In

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 M 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 m Phila. He will accompany me on the whole trip, much to both Mrs. Grant's and my delight. Before your letter suggesting a letter of condolence to the Prince of Wales for the death of Princess Alice, and requesting a word about you in a letter of thanks you supposed I would write to the President for his tender of a ship to take

Col.,—I am going to the Senate Chamber to hear the speeches on reconstruction this afternoon and will not be back to the office again. Please tell the orderly that brings my horse to return with him, as I will go home in the cars. Yours, &c., U. Slly and do not see how a word can be changed. All that you say that exception can be taken to is supported by quotations, or citations to, orders and letters of instruction of the time. I have been away from here for ten days visiting parts of Colorado I had never seen before. The trip was a very hard one though full of interest. I am satisfied this state has a great destiny before it. The new regions that I visited will show greater mineral resources than all that has been heretofore discov

word suggesting that I should keep back, or misrepresent, or cover up, any fact, or act, or statement, except the two or three utterances in favor of leniency which these letters contain. This of course did not prevent his making secret communications. Lisbon, Portugal, Oct. 27th, 1878. Dear Badeau,—Your letter of the 17th came to hand in Madrid where I was so busy that I did not get to write a letter to any one. I can give no explanation of the dispatches you speak of from Spottsylvania, of 10th & 11th of May, 1864, to Meade directing him to be prepared in a certain event to move to Gordonsville. The only thing is that I had in mind the possibility, if things favored it, of moving by my right flank instead of the left as we had been doing before. Gordonsville must have been put in without much reflection knowing that if we did move to the right events would determine where we would march to with[out] any reference to the original orders. We arrived here this A. M.,

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, Stratford, and Warwick, on his way, and receiving the freedom of nearly every city through which he passed. After this he paid a visit to Mr. and Mrs. Sartoris, the parents of his daughter's husband, who had a country house near Southampton. I had been absent so much from my consular post that, although this was with the sanction of the State Department, I felt that I ought now to remain for a while in London, and accordingly I was n

The old—Native—portion of the city however is different from anything I have yet seen either in Egypt or Turkey. 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 accommodat

But I shall go to my quiet little home in Galena and remain there until the cold drives me awayeeting of the Convention at Chicago. Galena, ill., Nov. 21st, 1879. My dear General,—I havto Havana and the City of Mexico and return to Galena about the last of April next year. In this cavorable criticisms. I expect to be back in Galena as soon as the weather gets pleasant in the spes, on leave, in April, 1880, but Grant was in Galena. I went out to see him in May, just before ththe chapter which I approved in my letter from Galena. I think now, I will be in New York City soon after my return to Galena. The probabilities are that I shall make my home there. But this is notto supplement my income or continue to live in Galena or on a farm. I have not got the means to livate who had defeated him at Chicago. Galena, ill., Sept. 20th, 1880. My dear Badeau,—I hav<

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. Your letter to the Herald, and the interview, have been copied everywhere in the states much to the gratification of friends and the confusion of enemies. I think you will have no cause of regret for

raveled to Bale, Switzerland, lay over Sunday there; thence to Strasburg where we stopped five or six hours, visiting the Cathedral, fortifications, &c.; thence to Metz for the night. The next day, until late in the afternoon, was spent in visiting points of interest in and about Metz, and in the evening we went on a few hours tMetz, and in the evening we went on a few hours travel to a little town—I have forgotten the name of it—near the border of Belgium. This was to save a too early start from Metz. The following day to Antwerp where we spent two days—Thence by steamer to London. I do not now think I shall visit Portugal. I have had some correspondence with Adm.l Le Roy—who has taken Worden's Metz. The following day to Antwerp where we spent two days—Thence by steamer to London. I do not now think I shall visit Portugal. I have had some correspondence with Adm.l Le Roy—who has taken Worden's place— in regard to the route. He advises against sending a vessel to Lisbon at this season of the year on account of the insufficiency of the Harbor for large vessels, making it necessary to anchor outside. My route will probably be through Madrid to Cadiz, thence up the Mediterranean. I will write a letter soon to Gen.

ch 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 the treaty has been deferred until December next. This I fea
