Correspondence between Lincoln and Secretary of War Stanton

Quote:
Dear Stanton: Appoint this man chaplain in the army. A. Lincoln.

Dear Mr. Lincoln: He is not a preacher. E. M. Stanton.

Dear Mr. Stanton: He is now. A. Lincoln.

Dear Mr. Lincoln: But there is no vacancy. E. M. Stanton.

Dear. Mr. Stanton: Appoint him Chaplain-at-large. A. Lincoln.

Dear. Mr. Lincoln: There is no warrant for that. E. M. Stanton.

Dear Stanton: Appoint him anyway. A. Lincoln.

Dear Mr. Lincoln: I will not. E. M. Stanton.
Can you imagine that happening today?
