4. That was good of Clemens, yes. With the

major stresses and responsibilities Grant endured during the war, the smoking was possibly a kind of relaxation or relief, nicotine dopamine chem.

Not an excuse, and tobacco's cancerous effects weren't acknowledged until the early decades of the 20th c. at the earliest from what I know. The Nazis, fanatics about health and fitness explored it in the 1930s or 1940s.
