The “whip-handle dispatch” refers to a group of letters sent from Matamoros, Mexico, to Texas in 1836. The letters, which were hidden in a hollow whip handle, were written to warn the Texans that a large number of Mexican troops might invade Texas in the summer of 1836. The dispatch resulted in the issuance of a circular calling for the enlistment of the militia on June 20, 1836.
