To George B. McClellan

Washington City, D.C.
Major Genl. McClellan July 5, 1862.

A thousand thanks for the relief your two despatches of 12 & 1 P.M. yesterday—give me. Be assured the heroism and skill of yourself, officers, and men, are, and forever will be appreciated. If you can hold your present position, we shall “hive” the enemy yet. A. LINCOLN
