To William S. Rosecrans

Major Gen. Rosecrans                Washington, D.C.,
Chattanooga, Tenn.                   Sep. 23 1863

Below is Bragg’s despatch, as found [in] the Richmond papers. You see he does not claim so many prisoners or captured guns, as you were inclined to concede. He also confesses to heavy loss. An exchanged General of ours leaving Richmond yesterday says two of Longstreets Divisions, & his entire Artillery, and two of Picketts brigades, and Wies’ legion, have gone to Tennessee. He mentions no other. A. LINCOLN
