Major General William T. Sherman to Senator John Sherman, April 6, 1865

[Goldsboro, North Carolina, April 6, 1865.]

Railroads work well, our supplies are well up, and we shall march next Monday, April 10. The next two months will demonstrate whether we can manœuver Lee out of Richmond and whip him in open battle.
