Executive Mansion,
Washington
Nov. 1, 1862
 
Whom it may concern 
Capt. Derrickson, with his company, has been, for some time keeping guard at my residence, now at the Soldiers Retreat. He, and his Company are very agreeable to me; and while it is deemed proper for any guard to remain, none would be more satisfactory to me than Capt. D. and his company.
LINCOLN
