An ORIGINAL TELEGRAPH FORM WRITTEN OUT AND SIGNED BY H. W. HALLECK for sending to GENERAL GEORGE MCCLELLAN and MENTIONING GENERAL GRANT, dated February 16, 186_ on the recto and dated February 16 1862 in another hand on the verso. The telegraph is written entirely in Halleck's hand (in pencil), shows that it was sent from St. Louis, and states: ["To] G B McLellan Washin Every Thing looks well, Grant says we can keep them in till mortar boats arrive. Comm. Foote will immediately return from Cairo with two more gun boats. Troops are moving very rapidly to Fort Donaldson. H. W. Halleck." Halleck wrote and sent the Telegraph shortly before he was recalled to Washington to serve as President Lincoln's General-in-Chief. Given the text of the Telegraph, we believe it to relate to the highly-important Mississippi River Campaigns conducted by the Union against the Rebels. The paper is in about Very Good condition with some edge wear and a tear from the top to the bottom -- which tear has been repaired on the sheet's verso. RARE AND NOTABLE. IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.
