The General with his accustomed kindness, greeted the fiend cordially and made him feel at home. This was the first opportunity we had met with to talk with the General about recent events. " General, are you going to Paris ?" " Yes, sir. You boys have written a good deal in your paper about my going thorn as a con missioner. I approciate the kind motive, but I must beg to Ise excused." " Why is that ?" "Well, I can't afford to take a commission from anybody. I want no oficen. As you have said. I know enough people in London and Paris to feel at home. Let somebody who needs the influence of a position to introduce them have these commissions. I am golng to l'aris, however." "Iam lad to hear that." "Yos, slr, I am going. Itwill be the third Paris Exposltlon that I will have attendled. I att'mlided the Exposition of 185l as Senator; i attended the Exposition of 1807 as a refugee, and I am going to this one as a gentleman."
