On Jan. 13, Col. Thomas J. Haines, St. Louis, had telegraphed to USG. "I desire to send beef cattle down the river Col Allen wishes to send mules to memphis shall we send both or must the mules give way to the cattle or the reverse Cattle are much needed below memphis & but little transportation can be procured from here" Telegram received, DNA, RG 393, Dept. of the Tenn., Telegrams Received.
