My dear Mrs. Stanford

If you knew with what pleasure and sympathy I listened last evening to the reading of your sweet kind letter to Mrs. Newman and knew of all the kind words said of you you would be very happy in deed. I was obliged to retire before Mrs. Newman left last evening, and was not well enough to take my usual Sunday drive XXX to Riverside today

You see I am thinking of you, of your goodness, of your purity, of your contentment, and am so, so, glad it is so with you, and hope you and Senator Stanford (my husbands friend) are quite well and I may have the pleasure of seeing you both soon

And I will (do) hope that at this moment you are thinking of me

your friend

Julia D. Grant

when this was told me I sat in the shaddow, and no one saw but the tears filled my eyes. You did think of me then XX my eyes are now full of tears as I write you this, but I have been ill, and am weak and emotionXXXX will soon be better when I leave New York. My daughter Mrs. LXXXXX and her two little girls sailed yesterday for England and I am again alone- again "a waif upon the worldwide common"

Mrs. Newman called to say good bye to Nellie. Mrs. Newman was not only well, but looking very handsome.

I see from the papers how occu pied both you and Senator Stanford are, with the inaugura tion of the University and how happy you must be in making the appointments of proffessors XX for this great university XXX

My dear Mrs. Stanford

I cannot wait any longer. I must write and tell you I am thinking of you, and looking for a letter from you--

Last week when my Nellie (& g) were visiting, my son Ulysses and his family, they were telling me of the delightful visit they had with you and how my little name sake (Julia the little one with her pretty curls) cried when she left your house and sobbed out, Oh do Mama let me stay always with this kind lady? XXX please let me? I do not want to go away. (I will tell you some thing very sad about this litle darling, when I see you again)
