To Edwin M. Stanton

Hon. Edwin M. Stanton,       City Point, Va.,
Secretary of War:                    April 2, 1865—11 a.m.

Dispatches frequently coming in. All going finely. Parke, Wright, and Ord, extending from the Appomattox to Hatcher’s Run, have all broken through the enemy’s intrenched lines, taking some forts, guns, and prisoners. Sheridan, with his own cavalry, Fifth Corps, and part of the Second, is coming in from the west on the enemy’s flank, and Wright is already tearing up the South Side Railroad. A. LINCOLN.
