To Edwin M. Stanton

                                          Head Quarters Armies of the United States.
Hon. Sec. of War           City-Point,
Washington D.C.           April 3. 8/00 A.M. 1865

This morning Gen. Grant reports Petersburg evacuated; and he is confident Richmond also is. He is pushing forward to cut off if possible, the retreating army. I start to him in a few minutes.
