To Ulysses S. Grant

Major General Grant         Executive Mansion,
Chattanooga, Tenn.           Washington, Dec. 8. 1863.

Understanding that your lodgment at Chattanooga and Knoxville is now secure, I wish to tender you, and all under your command, my more than thanks—my profoundest gratitude—for the skill, courage, and perseverance, with which you and they, over so great difficulties, have effected that important object. God bless you all.

A. LINCOLN
