I well remember the meetings herein narrated. See nothing for me to object to in the narrative as being made by General McDoWell, except the phrase attributed to me ``of the Jacobinism of Congress,'' which phrase I do not remember using literally or in substance, and which I wish not to be published in any event.

October 7, 1864. A. LINCOLN.
