Aug 28 1862. I received the following telegram from Gen. Halleck,
General Buell asks for re-enforcements. You will give him all the assistance you can spare.
H. W. HALLECK,
Two divisions have gone to Buell, and two more are expected to guard the line of railroad without sending there. I do not see how I am to further re-enforce him.
