My dear Mrs Stanford
Your answer to my last letter is a great disappointment to me.
It is true (as you say) that it is quite impossible to arrange for a dinner on short notice in New York and have just the
people one wants. But I will still hope to have the pleasure of having yourself and the senator dine with me informally when you do come to the city. Hoping you are now quite well I am always affectionately yours

and command him to stand for the next four years - would it not be lovely to have a broad liberal good western man there once more? Only think of the lovely time I would have visiting you there, God in His goodness grant this I pray - I go tomorrow to West Point. It is a pleasant ride you have either by rail or steamer and I will meet many pleasant old acquaintances - which will be pleasant. I would love to see you and if you cannot come up there, then telegraph me if with in two weeks, West Point care of Capt Pettit after next time I will be at Cranston Hotel near West Point ( to which there is a telegraph) and I will come down to see you my dear friend yours always with the sincerest love Julia D Grant
love to be near you my dear Mrs Stanford I think I will go later any way. if I find a pleasant party going about the time I can get off. The air is full of politics. It seems very like Blain with his selected by one wing of the republican party and Harrison by the other. Surely God will direct the Alliance to stand by our (yours and mine) great western luminary I hope the senator is a great deal better remember me to him JDG
3 East 66th Street May 30th 92 My dear Mrs Stanford It is a great disappointment to me to leave the City with out seeing you. I have not been well lately and the Dr says I ought to go to Aix-[en - Provence] I was hoping I might arrange to go at the same time that you go, not with you only at the same time, so that I would not feel alone and besides I

My dear Mrs Stanford
It is with deep regret I learn this morning of your sisters death,-- knowing as I do how you will grieve for her.
I think of you often and wish I were with you to listen again to
your earnest words of kindness and wisdom I feel that I ought and want to be near you but fate seems to order it otherwise and we hardly ever meet now.
I hope you are well and the senator your dear husband I hope is quite well again
I am well now,
