[left page] monument to your dear son.

I read the senators speech with appreciation and great pleasure. It was beautiful. I wish the College great success, I hope you will read the papers I send you telling of the beautiful equestrian statues erected to my husband

My dear Mrs Stanford

It gave me much pleasure to receive the newspaper from you as it told me how occupied you have been.

I must congratulate you and the senator on the completion of this munificent and beautiful

Mrs. Newman as I said arrived later unprepared and much fatigued. She arose and began her opening speech (and as you know her habit of speech is not very direct). She was soon informed by a man present that she had only fifteen minutes to speak. This interruption was not helpful to Mrs. Newman. Again she was called to by the same man "time up" and at last the man cruelly said "Madam I must call you to order". Upon this our friend took her seat and burst into tears when some kind ladies present went to her and accompanied her to the open air.

I have seen her several times since and she is just as she always is sweet and most sensible I thought I would write you as I feared you would hear of the cruel rumor and knew how it would grieve you. With sincere affection

Julia Dent Grant

Will you present my regards to Senator S. and your brother

[left page] Mrs. Newman dined with me last evening, and Mrs N is well notwithstanding the cruel assertions of the newspapers. She is looking a little worn and pale. She has had much care with her little tasks and always kind and willing. She has been asked to do too much. She was asked to open some meeting and arrived late (having been busy all day - attending to the flower arrangements of a lady who had no friends)

April 13th 91

My dear Mrs Stanford

Fannie writes me that she has seen you and how kind you have been to them and my little pets I want you specially to see my little Julia (the flower of the family). My Nellie will arrive on the nineteenth. She brings two little girls with her. I write now my dear Mrs Stanford to tell you Bishop and dear Mrs

now. I live so very very quietly and everyone is so engaged here that I could not get up even a small dinner without several days notice and since you say you want rest only. I tell you all this to induce you to make me the promised visit.

I would love so to have you if you would enjoy coming. Do think of West Point. It is only a trifle over an hour from N.Y. should the senator have business there.

I can't help thinking of your beautiful dinner, the appointments [insert: all] so magnificent so refined and your welcome so kind to me.

Your friend Julia D. Grant

favor of your dear Mrs Stanford since you have to fill these positions, and I feel sure my boy can fill either satisfactorily and by his services return value received and I am sure under such circumstances, my son will stand a good chance of securing the position

I hope the snow storm did not interrupt your journey or comfort and that you and the Senator reached home in safety

Yours with love Julia D Grant
