Lincoln's Letter to Maj. General Halleck about Meade and Gettysburg
"Now, if Gen. Meade can complete his work so gloriously prosecuted thus far, by the literal or substantial destruction of Lee's Army, the rebellion will be over." Dated: July 7, 1863.

Brig. General Herman Haupt traveled from Gettysburg to Washington on July 5 to personally inform President Lincoln over his (Haupt's) frustration over Meade's inaction.  It was this information that prompted the letter to Halleck above.
