Annotation

[1]   Copy, ISLA. Lincoln's endorsement is on a letter from Anne Sweatman, Washington, October 5, 1864, asking release of her husband, First Lieutenant Robert Sweatman of Company E, Fifth U.S. Cavalry, taken prisoner at Beaver Dam Depot, Virginia, on May 10, 1864. Presumably Sweatman had been exchanged but was not yet returned to service.
