Telegram to General J. C. Fremont. June 9, 1862
WASHINGTON, June 9, 1862.
Halt at Harrisonburg, pursuing Jackson no farther. Get your force well in hand and stand on the defensive, guarding against a movement of the enemy either back toward Strasburg or toward Franklin, and await further orders, which will soon be sent you.
