I wrote Sherman,
WASHINGTON, May 9, 1865-1. 30 p. m.
Major General W. T. SHERMAN,
Fort Monroe, Va.:
Your dispatch of yesterday received. I know of no order which changes your command in any particular. General Wilson is in telegraphic communication with Washington whilst you have not been; consequently instructions have been sent him direct.
