Washington, April of the death of General Grant was received with profound sorrow in army and of- ficial circles, especially by those older officers with whom the general had been intimately associated for years. The announcement was not entirely unexpected, for, while there had been no official notification of General Grant's illness. It was known several days ago that he was in a very grave condition. General Wood, chief of staff of the army, was one of.the first to receive the news. He said: ".General Grant's death will be a gfeat, loss tor-the'service.. .He was one of the' army's most efficient and val- uable officers."
