So I've been reading Jennison's The Humorous Lincoln

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.

President Abraham Lincoln, Washington, D.C.

George B. McClellan
Lincoln, being witty, responded:

George B. McClellan, Army of the Potomac:

As to the six cows captured - milk them.

A. Lincoln
Vigilantibus et non dormientibus jura subveniunt. Molon Labe!
