“Is it not probable that Bragg will come this way?”

Oct 23 1862.  I have passed on the reports of the Rebels concentrating their forces at Holly Springs to Gen. Halleck,

JACKSON, TENN., October 23, 1862-10 a. m.

Major General H. W. HALLECK, General-in-Chief:

 

It is now certain that the rebels have been largely re-enforced at Holly Springs and are strongly fortifying. Pemberton in command. Tilghman in command of exchanged prisoners. They are re-enforced by conscripts, Alabama and Texas troops. Is it not probable that Bragg will come this way?

 

U. S. GRANT,

Major-General.
