To George B. McClellan

Washington City, D.C.
Majr. Gen. McClellan June 3 1862

With these continuous rains, I am very anxious about the Chickahominy so close in your rear, and crossing your line of communication. Please look well to it. A. LINCOLN

McClellan telegraphed at 8:30 P.M., “Your despatch of Five PM just received. As the Chickahominy has been almost the only obstacle in my way for several days your Excellency may rest assured that it has not been over-looked Every effort has been made and will continue to be to perfect the communication across it Nothing of importance except that it is again raining.”
