To Ulysses S. Grant

Cypher
Lieut. Gen. Grant        Executive Mansion,
City Point, Va.             Washington, August 17. 1864.

I have seen your despatch expressing your unwillingness to break your hold where you are. Neither am I willing. Hold on with a bull-dog gripe, and chew & choke, as much as possible.

A. LINCOLN
