To Edwin M. Stanton

Hon. Sec. of War      Executive Mansion,
Dear Sir,                    Washington, Jan. 5, 1865.

Since parting with you, it has occurred to me to say that while Gen. Sherman’s “get a good ready is appreciated, and is not to be overlooked, time, now that the enemy is wavering, is more important than ever before. Being on the down-hill, & some what confused, keeping him going. Please say so much to Genl. S. Yours truly A LINCOLN
