“I know of no order which changes your command in any particular”

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.

U. S. GRANT,

Lieutenant-General.
