This must have been for Grant's 1872 re-election campaign, for which his running mate was actually Henry Wilson and not his sitting Vice-President, Schuyler Colfax. Colfax, thinking that Grant would not seek a second term, decided to try to win the Republican presidential nomination. When he learned that Grant was indeed going to run again, he reversed himself and tried to win the vice-presidential nomination, but lost to Wilson.
