To I. Wayne McVeagh

McVeigh.                 Executive Mansion,
Philadelphia           Washington, Oct. 13. 1863.

The enemy some days ago made a movement, apparantly to turn Gen. Meades right. This led to a manoevering of the two armies, and to pretty heavy skirmishing on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. We have frequent despatches from Gen. Meade, and up to ten o’clock last night, nothing had happened giving either side any marked advantage. Our army reported to be in excellent condition. The telegraph is open to Gen. Meade’s camp this morning, but we have not troubled him for a despatch.

A. LINCOLN
