I have a very vivid recollection of the interest he manifested in what we told him of the great revival which was making well nigh every camp vocal with the praises of God, and of the emphatic expressions of delight to which he gave utterance.
And when Dr. Lacy
said to him, “General, the chaplains of this army have a warm affection for you personally, and a deep interest in your welfare, and many of their most fervent prayers are offered in your behalf,” his face flushed, his eyes were moistened, and with deep emotion he replied, “I heartily thank them for that.
And I can only say that I am a poor sinner, trusting in Christ
alone for salvation, and needing all of the prayers they can offer for me.”
At our invitation he afterwards attended several meetings of our Chaplains' Association, and manifested the liveliest interest in the proceedings.
