General Horace Porter, Campaigning with Grant, Chapter 1 (search)
ubject of much regret to leave General Thomas, for I had become greatly attached to him, and had acquired that respect and admiration for the character of this distinguished soldier which was felt by all who had ever come in contact with him. Old Pap Thomas, as we all loved to call him, was more of a father than a commander to the younger officers who served under his immediate command, and he possessed their warmest affections. He and his corps commanders now made a written appeal to General Gitten pretty strongly in this case, and I hope favorable action may be taken. I replied that I would make my preparations at once to start East, and then withdrew. The next day I called to bid the general good-by, and, after taking leave of General Thomas and my comrades on the staff, set out for the capital by way of the new line of communication which had just been opened. A description of General Grant's personal appearance at this important period of his career may not be out of place
