To Thomas Swann and Others

                                                                  Office U.S. Military Telegraph,
Thomas Swan & others                       War Department, Washington, D.C.,
Baltimore, Md.                                       July 10. 9/20 AM. 1864.

Yours of last night received. I have not a single soldier but whom is being disposed by the Military for the best protection of all. By latest account the enemy is moving on Washington. They can not fly to either place. Let us be vigilant but keep cool. I hope neither Baltimore or Washington will be sacked. A. LINCOLN
