To Irvin McDowell

Major Genl. McDowell Washington City, D.C.
Falmouth, Va. May 26, 1862 1. P.M.

Despatchs from Geary, just received, have been sent you. Should not the remainder of your force except sufficient to hold the point at Frederick’sburg, move this way—to Manassas junction, or to Alexandria? As commander of this Department should you not be here? I ask these questions. A. LINCOLN
