Remember those dispatches Halleck sent for Buell? The ones Colonel McKibbin was not to deliver if Buell won a battle, or if George Thomas wasn’t around? Halleck tells McKibbin to hold off delivering them.
WASHINGTON, D. C., September 27, 1862.
Colonel J. C. McKIBBIN, Cincinnati:
Dispatches will not be delivered till further orders.*
H. W. HALLECK,
