24th July 1885.
My Dear Sir :
I have your note of the 23d and will be happy to see you and your son Rev R.T.S on Monday or Tuesday.
I expect to attend the funeral of Gen Grant, but shall not know until within a day or two of the burial. That seems now not likely to occur for a week or more.
Rev D. Stevenson DD
