Mary Marcy was Gen. McClellan’s mother-in-law.
Department of State
Washington, 29 Dec. 1863
My Dear Mrs. Marcy,
Some time before night I want to ask General McClellan a question or two for the President. I will come alone
Will you please let him sleep—and some time this afternoon will you let me know when he is strong enough to give me two or three minutes.
Faithfully your friend
William H Seward
