ALS, DNA WR RG 107, Presidential Telegrams, I, 233. Governor Bramlette telegraphed Lincoln on November 9, 1864: ``Genl Jno B. Houston, a loyal man and prominent citizen was arrested and yesterday started off by Genl Burbridge to be sent beyond our lines by way of Catlettsburg for no other offence than opposition to your reelection. . . . You are doubtless reelected, but surely it cannot sanction this ostracising of loyal men who honestly opposed you'' (DLC-RTL). See Lincoln to Burbridge, infra.
