    Ulysses S. Grant: Group of Six Printed Reception Invitations, 1879-1880. Wrapping up a two-year world tour after his presidency, Grant returned to San Francisco in September 1879 and made his way across country with crowds cheering at every stop. Offered here are six different invitations to various receptions held in his honor, as follows: (1) San Francisco, October 9, 1879, by the Chamber of Commerce and the Board of Trade; (2) Louisville, December 10, 1879, by the Citizens of Louisville; (3) Cincinnati, December 11, 1879; (4) Philadelphia, December 18, 1879, by the Grand Army of the Republic of Philadelphia; (5) Philadelphia, December 20, 1879, by the Joint Committee of City Councils; and (6) Steamer John W. Cannon (New Orleans), April 6, 1880, for an "Excursion to Jetties." A nice collection. Very fine.
