I have a web site on that subject, at
http://www.lakesidepress.com/Savannah-CivilWar/sherman-telegram.html

The telegram went by steamer Golden Gate to Fortress Monroe, VA. From there, it went by telegraph to the war office next to the white house, from where it was re-transcribed in handwriting, and delivered to Lincoln. Original documents are on the web site.

If you have any further questions after perusing the web site, please let me know.
