U.S. Grant III Clipped Signature, Plus Telegram Sent by Grandpa
5/26/2011 - ONLINE Books, Maps & Autographs
Lot of 2. Rare signature of U.S. Grant 3rd, whose signature looks very like that of his famous grandfather because he practiced signing that way. The younger Grant was the son of Frederick Dent Grant, the General and Julia's first son, not U.S. ("Buck") Grant, Jr. He graduated West Point sixth in the class of 1903 (in which Douglas MacArthur was first) and was assigned to the Engineering Corps, graduating from U.S. Engineer School in 1908. He served in all of the major 20th century conflicts through WWII. He was promoted to Colonel in the mid-1930s, so this sheet probably dates between 1935 and 1940, when Grant III became a Brigadier General.

The telegram was sent by President Ulysses S. Grant in Nov. 1874. It was sent to the Governor J.A. Campbell, Cheyenne, W.T. I learn with great regret of Mrs. Rawlins death. Please see that everything is done which is required or may be desired by the family and I shall attend to any expense incurred. Union General John A. Rawlins was a confidant of Grant's, and until his death in Sept. 1869, Grant's Secretary of War.
