It was a printed order from (General) Grant and wanted the officers and soldiers to take good care of ourselves, and in a few days he would have mustered out of the service and give us the privilege of returning to our homes as soon as they could get them station right................we heard the news Lincoln was shot dead. Some says he is wounded and some say he was shot dead. I hope it ain't so, it would be awful if he was dead. I suppose if it is true, you would have heard of it before this time..........."
