Final Lincoln story.
General McClellan grew tired of Lincoln's intermeddling. Lincoln was growing wearing of McClellan's inactivity and was urging McClellan onward to attack the Confederates. To mock the president, McClellan sent trivia.

George B. McClellan
Lincoln, being witty, responded:
George B. McClellan, Army of the Potomac:
As to the six cows captured - milk them.
