Aug 25 1862. Gen McClernand has appealed directly to President Lincoln to be transferred to Virginia. Being bypassed has apparently angered Gen. Halleck. I sent a telegram to Gen. McClernand,
By directions just received from Maj. Gen. Halleck you will report to Springfield Ills, and assist Governor Yates in the organization of volunteers. Turn over your command to Brig. Gen. J A Logan if he has not left, if he has to Gen. Ross.
