To John A. Dix

Major Gen. Dix.                         Washington, D.C.,
Fort-Monroe                              June 8 1863

The substance of the news sent of fight at Port-Hudson on the 27th. we have had here three or four days, and I supposed you had it also, when I said this morning “No news from Port-Hudson.” We knew that Gen. Sherman was wounded; but, we hoped, not so dangerously as your despatch represents. We still have nothing of that Richmond newspaper story of Kirby Smith crossing & of Banks losing an arm. A. LINCOLN
