General Grant is most gratified and pleased to announce that he will appear on campus at his Alma Mater, The United States Military Academy (West Point), Thursday, January 10th, instant. He is to help initiate ‘The Semester of Grant’ at the Academy. His schedule will include: attending the kick-off party; speaking to the Dean’s Book Club (He was elected President of the Student Dialectic Society in his last year at the Academy); speaking to 1st and 2nd year cadets about the benefits of choosing a major course of study in the Department of Social Sciences; briefly addressing the cadets from the ‘poop deck’ in the dining hall at required evening meal; touring the Academy and speaking to classes as schedule permits.
His gratification at being asked to do this has no bounds. His humility and sensitivity about this appearance has no depth. He is pleased.
