To George B. McClellan

Executive Mansion, Washington,
October 27, 1862. [3:25 P.M.]

Major-General McClellan: Your dispatch of 3 p.m. to-day, in regard to filling up old regiments with drafted men, is received, and the request therein shall be complied with as far as practicable.

And now I ask a distinct answer to the question, Is it your purpose not to go into action again until the men now being drafted in the States are incorporated into the old regiments?

A. LINCOLN.
