"In July 1863, he had told General Sickles that he appreciated Grant's uncomplaining nature: 'He doesn't worry and bother me. He isn't shrieking for reinforcements all the time. He takes what troops we can safely give him . . . and does the best he can with what he has got, and doesn't grumble and scold all while.'" (James F. Rusling, "Men and Things I Saw in Civil War Days" (New York: Eaton & Mains, 1899), 16.)

I see that. The Fehrenbachers don't list that in Recollected Words.
