Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.

To Edwin M. Stanton [1]

Hon. Sec. of War. City-Point, Va
Washington D.C. March 28. 1865. 12. M.

After your explanation, I think it is little or no difference whether the Fort-Sumpter ceremony takes place on the 13th. or 14th.

Gen. Sherman tells me he is well acquainted with James Yeatman, & that he thinks him almost the best man in the country for anything he will undertake. A. LINCOLN
