To Jesse K. Dubois

Hon. J. K. Dubois                 Washington City, D. C.
Springfield, Ills                      July 11 1863

It is certain that after three days fighting at Gettysburg, Lee withdrew and made for the Potomac; that he found the river so swolen as to prevent his crossing, that he is still this side near Hagerstown and Williamsport, preparing to defend himself; and that Meade is close upon him preparing to attack him, heavy skirmishing having occurred nearly all day yesterday. I am more than satisfied with what has happened North of the Potomac so far, and am anxious and hopeful for what is to come.

A. LINCOLN
