    Description

    Ulysses S. Grant Autograph Letter Signed. Two pages, 5.25" x 8", Hotel Bristol, Paris, November 7, 1877. While on their tour around the world, the Grants spent five weeks in Paris, where they met with the French president and saw the Statue of Liberty being constructed. Addressed to a Mrs. Pope, Grant writes regarding the opera, in part: "On examination I find that it is to-morrow evening . . . that Mrs. Grant and I are engaged for the . . . Opera. If the young ladies will be here by eight in the evening we will be most happy to see them to the Opera, and back to the hotel at the close." Grant was unimpressed with Paris, later writing of the experience, "I have seen nothing here that would make me want to live in Paris."

    Condition: Smoothed fold. One small chip at the right edge with some slight ink bleed-through.
