Nashville, Tennessee to Louisville, Kentucky
General Grant and I have much business to discuss before the Spring campaign and time is short. Grant needs to start East to organize his command. Grant decided that I should accompany him to Cincinnati and we could discuss the war during the trip. We boarded the cars for Louisville and arrived late at night. We checked in the Galt House overnight and will arrive in Cincinnati tomorrow. I have telegraphed Ellen and she will meet me in Cincinnati.
