We are hoping most sincerely to hear er long, if you and Mrs Stanford will be in Vienna, during June, as I had asked for a leave of absence from here for July and August, not having been away a day from the Legation, since my coming a year ago. We would feel most distressed, however, to be

in danger of missing you and Mrs Stanford, and so hope to hear some thing definite as to your plans, though I dont want to trouble you in any way.

With affectionate regards from us all here, I remain faithfully and sincerely yours Frederick. D. Grant.

My Dear Governor Stanford:

Princess Reuss, the wife of the Germany Ambassador here, is deeply interested in the founding of a home for poor protestant girls, which is really a most commendable charity.

When I enclosed her letter to you, I did it with pleasure and at her earnest request; but I feel that I must thus privately explain the facts, and let you know I could not well refuse to carry out her wishes as she came to me so
