5. letter of General Sedgwick. headquarters Sixth army corps Welford Ford, Dec. 16, 1863. [Personal.] My Dear Townsend: There is a change proposed in the organization of this army — reducing the number of corps to three. Whether I am to be retained as one of the commanders, I do not know; but I write this to ask you, when the matter is brought up in Washington, to retain the number of this corps — the Sixth. It is entirely harmonious, and a great deal of esprit du corps is in it. I do not believe there is a regiment in it that would leave willingly. Another reason is — since its organization there has never been a regiment added or detached. This is not the case with the other corps. The Third has been made up of the odds and ends from several armies, and this is partly true of the First; and every corps (the Sixth excepted) has had several regiments assigned to it, from time to time. I am afraid the First, Second, and Third will be retained, when I should like to<

8. correspondence between President Lincoln and General Grant. The following is a copy of a correspondence which took place between the President and Lieutenant-General Grant: Executive Mansion, Washington, April 30, 1864. Lieutenant-General Grant: Not expecting to see you before the spring campaign opens, I wish to express in this way my entire satisfaction with what you have done up to this time, so far as I understand it. The particulars of your plans I neither know nor seek to know. You are vigilant and self-reliant, and pleased with this, I wish not to obtrude any restraints or constraints upon you. While I am very anxious that any great disaster, or capture of our men in great numbers, shall be avoided, I know that these points are less likely to escape your attention than they would mine. If there be any thing wanting which is within my power to give, do not fail to let me know it. And now, with a brave army and a just cause, may God sustain you! Yours, very
Anecdote of President Lincoln.--Mr. Lincoln's practical shrewdness is exemplified in the following anecdote, which is sufficiently characteristic: In the purlieus of the Capitol at Washington, the story goes that, after the death of Chief-Justice Taney, and before the appointment of Mr. Chase in his stead, a committee of citizens from the Philadelphia Union League, with a distinguished journalist at their head as chairman, proceeded to Washington, for the purpose of laying before the PresidWashington, for the purpose of laying before the President the reason why, in their opinion, Mr. Chase should be appointed to the vacancy on the bench. They took with them a memorial addressed to the President, which was read to him by one of the committee. After listening to the memorial, the President said to them, in a very deliberate manner: Will you do me the favor to leave that paper with me? I want it in order that, if I appoint Mr. Chase, I may show the friends of the other persons for whom the office is solicited, by how powerful an infl
