To Julia Dent Grant

Sacket's Harbor N. Y.
August 10th 1851

MY DEAREST JULIA

My regular day for writing has come again but this time I have no letter of yours to answer. I am looking for a long letter now evry day. I am so sorry that you are not here now. Sacket's Harbor is one of the most pleasant places in the country to spend a summer. It is always cool and healthy. There are several pleasant families in garrison and the parade ground would be such a nice place for Fred. to run. I want to see the little dog very much. You will start now very soon will you not? Evry letter I get now I shall expect to hear that you are geting ready to start. I have not got a particle of news to write you only that I am well and want to see Fred. and you very much.

I have had some very nice furnature made in garrison and otherwise our quarters look very nice. All that we want now to go to housekeeping is the table furnature. That I will not buy until you come on lest I should not please you. The furnature made in garrison is nicer than I could buy in Watertown and more substantial. It consists of lounges, chairs and a center table.

I know dearest Julia you will dislike very much to leave
