too hot to suit me, and I am sure I don't envy the possessors of it in the least. I wish you could see what a business I am doing, as I write, in the way of spearing flies; every time, nearly, that I dip the pen in the inkstand out comes a defunct fly. I am so glad you visited that hospital. I thank you for it from the bottom of my heart. I know it did them infinite good, and I am sure that you will never meet one of the Army of the Potomac without a kind word and your brightest smile. Aug 10, 8 A. M. . . . Halleck is turning out just like the rest of the herd. The affair is rapidly developing itself, and I see more clearly every day their settled purpose to force me to resign. I am trying to keep my temper. I have no idea that I will be with this army more than two or three weeks longer, and should not be surprised any day or hour to get my walking-papers. 4. P. M. . . . The absurdity of Halleck's course in ordering the army away from here is that it cannot possib

I did not, as the commander of that army, allow the occasion to pass without distinctly setting forth my views upon the subject to the authorities in the following telegram: Aug. 4.--Your telegram of last evening is received. I must confess that it has caused me the greatest pain I ever experienced, for I am convinced that the order to withdraw this army to Acquia creek will prove disastrous to our cause. I fear it wiatches: August 13th 11.30 P. M. Please come to office; wish to talk to you. What news from Pope? August 14th 12.30 A. M.

On the same day the following was received from his Excellency the President: Washington, Aug. 29, 1862, 2.30 P. M.--What news from direction of Manassas Junction? What generally? A. Lincoln. Maj.-Gen. Mcclellan. To which I replied as follows: Aug. 29, 1862, 2.45 P. M.--The last news I received from the direction of Manassas was from stragglers, to the effect that the enemy wecoln, President. And copy to Gen. Halleck. To which the following is a reply: Washington, Aug. 29, 1862, 4.10 P. M.--Yours of to-day just received. I think your first alternative, to wit, to them in good order. Reports, so far as heard from, are favorable as to condition of works. Aug. 29, 10 P. M.--Your despatch received. Franklin's corps. has been ordered to march at six o'clopresent garrisons, and the movements of the enemy seem to indicate an attack upon those works. Aug. 30, 11.30 A. M.--Your telegram of 9 A.

They were among the richest and most influential citizens of Louisiana. Their
