To Anson Stager

Anson Stager                    Washington, D.C.,
Cleveland, O.                     May 24 1863 [10:40 P.M.]

Late last night Fuller telegraphed you, as you say, that “the stars and stripes float over Vicksburg, and the victory is complete”.  Did he know what he said, or did he say it without knowing it? Your despatch of this afternoon throws doubt upon it.

A. LINCOLN
