To William S. Rosecrans

Major General Rosecrans                  Washington, D.C.,
Chattanooga, Tenn.                            Sep. 22. 1863 [8:30 A.M.]

We have not a word here as to the whereabouts or condition of your Army, up to a later point than Sunset Sunday the 20th. Your despatches to me of 9. A.M. and to Gen. Halleck of 2. PM. yesterday tell us nothing later on those points. Please relieve my anxiety as to the position & condition of your army up to the latest moment.

A. LINCOLN
