During this period he gave me more of his confidence thOn 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 oury his son, Colonel Grant, and Mr. Borie. I returned with him to Paris, and accompanied him to Marseilles, from which place he sailed for the East. After this I did not see him again till the spring I will not attempt it. You speak of only receiving two letters from me since my departure from Marseilles! Probably since your last letter you have received two or three others. At all events I have to any one else, except my children and possibly Ammen. I have received since leaving you at Marseilles three or four batches of your book and returned all of them. I hope you have received them al

s 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 place— in regard to the route. He advises against sending a vessel to Lisbon at this so idea now of making the tour around the world, but will go back home in the spring. We will stay in Austria through September and then go to Spain and probably Portugal. I will then have seen every country in Europe and will be ready to sit down for the winter. Mrs. Grant joins me in kindest regards. Very Truly Yours. U. S. of the 1st is just at hand. I am sorry you are too unwell to come over before my departure. The latter part of next week we start on our trip through Spain & Portugal. As we will probably visit Algiers, and possibly some other points in the Mediterranean before returning to Paris, we may not return here before December. I ha<

efers to the promise of President Hayes to retain me at the Consulate General at London. Grant had heard that several aspirants were attempting to supplant me, and therefore 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
fford 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 stricken from the retired

on of public opinion as to political objects. It has been a long time in preparation and the public has known all about it. If the work should be withheld the public might say that there was an object in that. I would go on as fast as possible and when the work is ready publish it: let the public say what they please. Our trip through Spain, like all others, was very delightful. We received marked attention from the officials everywhere, and no place more marked than while we were at Gibraltar. Lord & Lady Napier, with the officers of the garrison, seemed not to be able to do too much for us. Hoping to see you either in London or Paris before our departure, I am as always, Yours Very Truly, U. S. Grant. Gen. A. Badeau, Consul-Gen. of the U. S., London, Eng. Letter no. Forty-seven. I had been requested by prominent Irishmen to ask General Grant to visit their country, and accordingly wrote to him on the subject. The Richmond was the naval vessel placed at his

report of the battle of Cold Harbor, for my Military History of Grant: [Telegram.] Washington, Nov. 1, 1876. Gen. Badeau, U. S. Consul-General London: No report from Smith after June 4th. U. S. Grant. Letter no. Fifteen. This letter was written immediately before the election of Hayes, and of course toward the close of Grant's second Presidential term: Executive Mansion, Washington, Nov. 2d 1876. Dear Badeau,—I have read with great pleasure your chapter on the Cold Harbor Campaign, and given it to Babcock to return. I have no criticisms to make, and think it not only very accurate, but that it will explain many existing misapprehensions in regard to that Campaign. I have no time to write further, people being in waiting now wishing to come in to see me. By June next I hope to see you, in person, in London. It is my intention by that time to start on a somewhat extended tour, taking Mrs. Grant and Jesse with me. Jesse will then be a senior in Cornel

he greatest interest, both while he was President and afterward. Philadelphia, Pa., Dec. 27th, 1879. My dear Badeau,—I have now been in Phila nearly two weeks and have been kept so busy all the time that I have not been able to glance over the morning papers even except two or three times. The trip from Chicago here has been a very fatiguing one though very gratifying. No doubt you have seen fuller accounts of it than I would give if I was going to describe it. The reception at Louisville however astonished me. Notwithstanding a heavy rain storm when I reached there, and ankle deep mud in the streets, the way was packed with people throughout the whole line marked out for the procession. The windows were crowded with ladies & children waving their handkerchiefs, and the houses all decorated with stars & stripes. The people seemed very cordial & enthusiastic. The reception here has been simply overwhelming.—To-day I start for Cuba & Mexico. Sheridan & wife, Fred & his w
wo military papers for their magazine. I laid the matter before him and the last sentence in this letter was his reply: New York City, Jan'y 21, 1884. Dear General Badeau,—I have your several letters, all received on due time, but as I have to dictate, I will not now undertake to answer them. I am still a great sufferer, confined to my room and have not had my clothes on since Christmas Eve, when I received my injury. It is barely possible that Mrs. Grant and I may get down to Bermuda and Havana this winter, if I should recover sufficiently to travel in time to make our visit. I will say, however, that I have no idea of undertaking the task of writing any of the articles the Century requests. With kind regards of the family. Very truly yours, U. S. Grant. Per F. F. Wood. Letter no. Ninety-two. Mr. George Jones, the proprietor of The New York Times, was passing a part of the winter in Cuba, and gave a report of General Grant's condition that made me fee

the Commander of the Medn Squadron saying that about the first of Decr I will go to Spain and if he can have a vessel at Lisbon I will join him at that port about ten days later. If preferable to meet me at some Mediterranean port I would be glad tspondence 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 anchoror 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 sident once or twice again, but with little result. He once said that the Secretary of State had proposed the mission to Lisbon for me, but that he himself had declared he could not ask me to accept the post, as he had urged me to decline Copenhagen<

l to memory the time of my visit to Burlington to see after the children's schooling; but Mrs. Grant never went with me there before the night of Mr. Lincoln's assassination. The present Atty. Gen. Devens was, I think, the Cavalry Gen. Gen. Torbert can answer that question, and it is too late for me to ask him. He goes with me in the morning however and I will ask him then. I believe this answers all your questions in your last letters. For the next fifteen days my address will be Nice, France. After that anything directed to Drexel, Paris will reach me. But it is likely you will have my directions. I told you in a former letter that I had written to Sherman as I stated I would. I also wrote to Porter, but nothing affecting your status in your present position. Porter received my letter I know because Buck says in one of his last that it was shown to him. I hope you will persevere in your work, and if four-in-hand goes slower than a single team that you will come down
