President Grant and the State Department sought the removal of Catacazy due to his poor conduct. However, he remained as minister until after Grand Duke Alexei's trip to the United States, because a minister needed to be present for the visit and there wasn't sufficient time to replace Catacazy before Alexei's arrival.
