The only message recorded as sent by Jackson to Lee on the 15th was the
announcement of the surrender of HF. In that message, OR, Vol. 19, pt.
1, p. 951, he asks Lee where to send his troops. If there is something
else I don't know of it, and neither does Joe Harsh, who discusses it in
Sounding the Shallows, Chap. 8, section L.

some time around the morning of September 15th, wrote Lee from Harper's
Ferry that, "I will meet you in Sharpsburg". Can't find the cite.
Actually can only find Stonewall asking Lee where he should go after
the fall of HF. Any thoughts? Thanks.
