Gen. Rosecrans is apparently going to receive a promotion for his victory at Corinth. I passed along a telegram from Gen. Halleck to him.
Head Quarters Dept. of West Tenn.
Jackson Tenn Oct. 23d 1862
Maj. Genl. Rosecrans,
The following dispatch is just this moment received.
Major-General GRANT, Jackson, Tenn.:
You will direct Major-General Rosecrans to immediately repair to Cincinnati, where he will receive orders.
H. W. HALLECK,
Turn your command to Hamilton. I will send Quimby to take his division. Can you get in your report of the “Battle of Corinth” before starting? I would like to have it if possible.
I predict an important command where in the course of events we may cooperate.
