The truth is that the outfit could not advantageously be bought without the gold, which could not be obtained short of the bank. He ac- cordingly gave his note indorsed by E. A. Collins and Samuel Hughlette [Hugh- lett], and receiving the specie purchased with it a horse of John C. Calderwood, in this city, and other necessaries demanded by his position. The note was paid in full some time before it became due, the money having been sent by Grant to his friend, Major Rowley, for that purpose. Your correspondent has been shown the letter of instruction written by Grant while at Cairo." New York Evening Telegram, Aug. 8, 1885. John C. Collins, son of E. A. Collins, later recalled that USG had stated that his father and brother Orvil refused to loan him the money and that E. A. Collins had endorsed a note for $500 since he had frequently advanced money to USG previously and had been reimbursed by Jesse R. Grant. John C. Collins to Hamlin Garland, Oct. 22, 1896, Garland Papers, University of Southern California. See also Richardson, p. 186.
