This is reproduced in fac simile for the first time. The message was as follows: "I have witnessed since my sickness just what I have wished to pee ever since the war: harmony and good feeling between the sections. I baveal* ways contended that if there had been nobody left but the soldiers we would have had peace in a year. Jubal Early and Hill are'the only two that I know of who' do not seem to be satisfied on the Southern side. We have some on ours who failed to accomplish as'much as they wished, or who did not get warmed up to the fight until Jt was all over, who have not bad quite full sat* isfaction. The great majority, too, of those who did not go into the war have long since grown tired of the long con. troversy. We may now well look forward to a perpetual peace at home.and a national strength that will secure us against any foreign complication. I believe myself that the war was worth all It cost us, fearful as that was. Since it was over I have visited every State in Europe and a number in the East.
