I approve your Fort-Sumpter programme. Grant dont seem to know Yeatman very well, but thinks very well of him so far as he knows---thinks it probable that Y. is best man for the place. I told you this yesterday, as well as that you should do as you think best about Mr. Whiting's resignation, but I suppose you did not receive the despatch. I am on the boat, and have no later war news than went to you last-night. A. LINCOLN
