Annotation

[1]   Record of Services Rendered the Government by B. H. Grierson in 1865 (privately printed), p. 185. According to the source, this note was on a small card on the back of which Stanton wrote: ``General [Benjamin H.] Grierson has permission to remain at Washington two days.'' See Lincoln to military officers commanding in West Tennessee, supra (VIII, 294-96).
