To Maj. Gen. George G. Meade

May 13th/64 8.40 a. m.

MAJ. GEN. MEADE,

From the dispatches just shown me by Capt. Meade 1 I do not infer the enemy are making a stand but simply covering a retreat which must necessarily have been slow with such roads and so dark a night as they had last night. I think it advisable to push with at least three good Divisions to see beyond doubt what they are doing.

Respectfully &c
U. S. GRANT
Lt. Gen.

ALS, Berg Collection, NN. O. R., I, xxxvi, part 2, 698. Also on May 13, 1864, USG endorsed a letter forwarded to him by Maj. Gen. George G. Meade. "I do not desire a battle brought on with the enemy in their position of yesterday but want to press as close to them as possible to determine their position and strength. We must get by the right flank of the enemy for the next fight." Copy, Meade Papers, PHi. O. R., I, xxxvi, part 2, 716. See ibid., p. 715.
