To Joseph Hooker

Major General Hooker           Washington City,
Fairfax Station.                        June 15. 81/2 P.M. 1863

The facts are now known here that Winchester and Martinsburg were both besieged yesterday; the troops from Martinsburg have got into Harper’s Ferry without loss; those from Winchester, are also in, having lost, in killed, wounded and missing, about one third of their number. Of course the enemy holds both places; and I think the report is authentic that he is crossing the Potomac at Williamsburg. We have not heard of his yet appearing at Harper’s Ferry, or on the river anywhere below. I would like to hear from you. A. LINCOLN
