Dear Sir

It has occured to me that it would be well enough to remind you that General Grant did his full justice in connection with the battle of Monocacy, In his official report of 1865, he states directly that by the battle he was enabled to get troops to Washington in time to save that city from capture. In your article upon the subject you should not omit noticing that part of General G.'s report. This a substantial acknowledgement that I saved the city.

Very truly, yours, Lew. Wallace
