Hon. E. M. Stanton, Sec of War, Washington

I am at this point in my return. The 2d & 6th Corps and the Cavalry are on their way back to Burkes Station. The 5th and 24th Corps remain at Appomattox Station to arrange the paroles of Gen. Lee’s Army. When this is done the 5th Corps will join the other Corps at the A.P. If advantage is taken of the present feeling in the South I am greatly in hopes an early peace will be secured.
