Gen. Hancock has notified Gen. Halleck that rebel commander John Mosby and his cavalry have called for a truce. It seems likely they will surrender. I wrote Hancock,
WASHINGTON, April 19, 1865.-12.10 p. m.
Major-General HANCOCK, Winchester, Va.:
You may receive all rebel officers and soldiers who surrender to you on exactly the same terms were given to General Lee, except, have it distinctly understood that all who claim homes in States that never passed ordinances of secession have forfeited them and can only return on compliance with the amnesty proclamation. Maryland, Kentucky, Delaware, and Missouri are such States. They may return to West Virginia on their paroles.
