To mark the opening of the Grant Memorial in New York City, an American journalist posted to Great Britain wrote the attached article, quoting from as many as eight British newspapers that saw fit to liberally sprinkle their pages with a variety of laudatory adjectives in praise of General Ulysses S. Grant:

"He sprang from the people, he was the son of a plain farmer, and had 'driven team' in his day. Yet he was also a trained soldier. But, from first to last, he was merely the citizen in arms, and with the mighty array he commanded, he resumed his position in civil life as soon as his work was done...The giants of the Civil War were probably the last of a great race."
