To William H. Seward 
Yours of to-day received. I think there is no probability of my remaining here more than two days longer. If that is too long come down. I passed last night at Richmond and have just returned.
 OR, I, XLVI, III, 572. This telegram appears in NH, XI, 73, erroneously addressed ``Hon. Secretary of War.'' Stanton may have received a copy, but Seward's telegram to Lincoln on April 5 indicates the correctness of the address in the Official Records: ``We need your personal sanction to several matters here which are important and urgent in conducting the Government but not at all critical or serious. Are you coming up or shall I go down to you with the papers. The public interest will not suffer by you remaining where you are'' (DLC-RTL).
