To Ulysses S. Grant

                                         Office U.S. Military Telegraph,
Lieut. Genl. Grant        War Department,
City-Point, Va                Washington, D.C., Oct. 12. 1864.

Sec. of War not being in, I answer yours about election. Pennsylvania very close, and still in doubt on home vote. Ohio largely for us, with all the members of congress but two or three. Indiana largely for us. Governor, it is said by 15,000, and 8. of the eleven members of congress. Send us what you may know of your army vote. A LINCOLN
