that my place now, is near my Nellie. If that dreadful panic had not come last year, I would have made a fine sale of my dear beautiful book, and if I had, I was going to empty the whole of it (one hundred thousand dollars) into your lap, in exchange for your charming sunny house in Washington, and how I would have enjoyed having all my young people with me, but it was willed otherwise and now, I go to the children in place of their coming to me. I go to the Col's for a while and then to Nellie's for a longer visit. Ulysses with his family are still at San Diego, as is my Jesse with his family who are so happy just now in occupying their pretty little house I have given them. Their letters are so full of love and gratitude that I feel more than happy that I

My dear Mrs Stanford

This is the very first moment I have been really able (since I telegraphed you of my arrival) to sit down and write you. I have been ill ever since I arrived. It is over fatigue and excitement I suppose for of the latter I have had

much at my old home St Louis Mo.

I must tell you how much I with my Jesse and his nice little wife enjoyed your delightful car, which I used as far as St Louis, as I was to remain there a week I surrendered it to the Rail way authorities, who said it would be properly cared for. He

JESSE GRANT AND THAT TIA JUANA "CONCESSION."

The Times is glad to be able to state that it has received from authentic and absolutely reliable sources a complete and satisfactory refutation of the rumor concerning the alleged Tia Juana gambling concession to Jesse Grant. This rumor has received a good deal of publcity at the hands of the eastern press, and it gives The Times much satisfaction to say that Mr. Grant has been at no time in any way connected with the land-grant scheme which is to have a huge gambling and lottery concern for one of its main features. Mr. Grant applied for no concession whatever for privileges of any kind at Tia Juana. It is true that he was asked to apply for a concession, but he refused to do so. Then he was asked for permission to have application made by others, in his name, but he declined positively and point blank to permit such use of his name. If application has been made for any such concession in Mr. Grant's name, it is with even less warrant than if the applicant had used the name of Senator Perkins or Senator White without their authority, since (needless to say) neither of those gentlemen has refused to apply for the concession, directly or indirectly, while Mr. Grant has.

That other persistent and annoying report with regard to the money allowed Mr. Grant for expenses during the memorial week, would not have gained such wide circulation had its desseminators looked more closely into the plan of the committee on entertainment, which was to assume entirely the expenses of all invited guests. Mr. Grant has in no wise reflected on his distinguished family by his action in either affair.
