To Ulysses S. Grant

“Cypher”                      United States Military Telegraph,
Lieut. Gen. Grant      War Department, Washington,
City-Point, Va           July 11. 1864 [8 A.M.]

Yours of 10:30 P.M. yesterday received, and very satisfactory. The enemy will learn of Wright’s arrival, and then the difficulty will be to unite Wright and Hunter, South of the enemy before he will recross the Potomac. Some firing between Rockville and here now. A. LINCOLN
