Washington, D.C., June 29th, 1893.

Dear Madam,

Please pardon the liberty I take in expressing my sincere condolence in your crushing bereavement.

My dear Bishop Newman introduced me to yourself and the Sentator, though I coud not expect you to remember the occasion. Bishop Fowler of San Francisco is a staunch friend of mine, and a College class mate for four years, at old Genesee I will only add, if I can be of any use to you in Washington, I will be glad to serve you - I pray God to supply you with all needed grace, I am with great respect

Yours &c. J. N. Dorris P.O. Dept.

My dear Mrs Stanford, I have neglected to mention, as I had promised to do in writing to you, that Genl Grant's stenographer, Mr Dawson would be delighted always to serve you or the Governor if you ever need him. We all thought highly of him, as an honorable, hard-working, earnest man, and shall be always glad to speak in his praise. Of course you may remember Mr. Dawson, as having taken down some of Dr. Newman's sermons and perhaps you saw him at our house.

With love from us all I remain yours affectionately

Ida H. Grant
