you are progressing so well. Hope Vol. 2, will soon be completed and that the book will find large sale. No doubt but Gov. Fish will take great pleasure in aiding you in your next book. He has all the data so far as his own Dept. was concerned. It was his habit to sum up the proceedings of each day before leaving his office and to keep that information for his private journal. To-day we ascend Mt. Vesuvius, to-morrow visit Pompeii and Herculaneum. About Saturday, the 22d start for Palermo, thence to Malta where we will probably spend the 25th. From there we go to Alexandria and up the Nile. That is about as far as I have definitely planned, but think on our return from the Nile, we will go to Joppa and visit Jerusalem from there, possibly Damascus and other points of interest also, and take the ship again at Beyrout. The next point will be Smyrna, then Constantinople. I am beginning to enjoy traveling and if the money holds out or if Consolidated Va Mining stock does, I

If you can go on Thursday stay the balance of the week. We have no company invited for this week, consequently plenty of room. Very Truly Yours, U. S. Grant. P. S. The mail laying before me when you were in had the acknowledgment from Lytton, the first received. Next I believe was from the King of Siam. U. S. G. Letter no. Seventy-nine. This note accompanied the article of General Pleasanton, to which it refers: In cleaning up my desk to go to the city I find Pleasanton's criticisms on your book. You will find that after all it was Thomas and Rosecrans—principally Pleasanton—who captured Richmond. U. S. G. Letter no. Eighty.

The Mr. Welsh spoken of was the United States Minister at London, and Mr. Hoppin was the First Secretary of Legation. Bombay, India, Feby. 17th 1879. My dear Badeau,—We reached this place on the 13th after a most pleasant voyage. From Suez to Bombay the temperature was just right tBombay the temperature was just right to keep all the passengers on deck from the hour of rising in the morning to the hour of retirement in the evening. The sky was clear and the sea so smooth that you might almost play billiards on decart for the interior where we expect to see more characteristic phases of Indian life & habits. Bombay has much in common with European cities. It is a manufacturing and commercial city. The old—Naetter no. Fifty. Calcutta, March 15th 1879.

tford—all entertained him; and everybody of any consequence in London called on him. The Provost of Eton invited him to lunch, the University 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 is

Nevertheless I conducted all his correspondence with the civic functionaries, accepted his invitationsice—active—it would look as though he had raised the question and got a decision in his favor. I shall probably go to Torquay on Monday next. If you feel like going, and that you can do so without detriment to the public service, my sending yourhowever I see you wrote to the Mayor that we would be there on Tuesday, which is right. We start in a few minutes for Torquay. Yours Truly, U. S. Grant. Letter no. Twenty-one. I had suggested that General Grant should write in person,uch matters, but in the hurry of travel 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 t<

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. Your letter to the

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. t it was read and revised by him in advance of publication. It is to this that he refers in the following letter. When General Grant wrote that he was tired of going all the time, he had just returned from Rome, Florence, and Venice; but from Cairo he had written: Our trip has been a most enjoyable one, and the sights exceed in colossal grandeur the guide-book descriptions. The contrast in his impressions and emotions is characteristic. The works of art and even the antiquities of Italy

th 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 Club gave him dinners, at the last of which the Duke of Cambridge, the Commander-in-Chief of the British army, presided; and there were innumerable parties, afternoon and
