Apparently the dispatches from Grant haven’t gotten to Sherman’s army yet. Howard wonders what’s going on at Richmond.
HEADUARTERS ARMY OF THE TENNESSEE,
New Berne, April 5, 1865.
COMMANDING OFFICER, Morehead City:
Please inform me what news there is from General Grant in the papers of April 1 and later, or from any other source. A rumor of a severe battle has reached us, but nothing definite.
O. O. HOWARD,
