On Thursday last I received letter from the Secretary of State requesting my presence in Washington the first of the coming week in connection with the commercial treaty between the United States and Mexico. I wrote to him how inconvenient it would be for me to go before the last of the week, and that if not absolutely necessary I would postpone my visit to that time. Today I received an answer saying that the Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, of the Senate, desires me to appear before that committee on Thursday next. In view of the fact that there will be but three weeks of the sessions after Thursday next, and the great importance of the treaty under consideration, I put that I must go to Washington Thursday evening. General and Mts. Beale will be here Thursday evening to spend some days with us and Mrs. Grant feels that she would not like to have them, and General Beale writes me that Mrs. Beale is suffering so with her eye that she will have to keep to the house and out of strong light. Very Truly yous U.S. Grant.” In near fine condition.
