To Julia Dent Grant

Detroit Michigan
Wednesday 28th May 1851

DEAREST JULIA

You will no doubt be astonished to learn that we have all been ordered away from Detroit. Maj. Gore goes with his company to Fort Gratioit. Col. Whistler is ordered to move his Head quarters to Fort Niagara; but as there are not sufficient quarters there he has represented the matter to Washington and no doubt our destination will be changed to Sacket's Harbor. 1 Wont this be pleasant. I will write to you again before we leave here and tell you all about it. Dr. Tripler goes with us and Capt. McDowell goes to Jefferson Barracks. I will send your scarf by him.

Mrs. Gore is thoroughly disgusted at the idea of going to Gratiot. She seems really distressed at the idea of being separated from you. She starts to-day so as to be there before her troubles come on.

I think now I will send for you sooner than you expected to return when you left. When you come I will meet you at Detroit and we will spend a week here and at Fort Gratioit. If Ellen is not to be married this Fall get her to come with you and spend this Winter.
