Hon. Secretary of War. Executive Mansion
My dear Sir. Washington Jan. 25. 1865

About Jews. I wish you would give Dr. Zacharie a pass to go to Savannah, remain a week and return, bringing with him, if he wishes, his father and sisters or any of them. This will spare me trouble and oblige me. I promised him long ago that he should be allowed this whenever Savannah should fall into our hands.

Blumenberg, at Baltimore. I think he should have a hearing. He has suffered for us & served us well---had the rope around his neck for being our friend---raised troops---fought, and been wounded. He should not be dismissed in a way that disgraces and ruins him without a hearing. Yours truly A. LINCOLN
