Brigadier-General J. M. Schofield to General Totten
SAINT LOUIS, MO., August 14, 1862.
General TOTTEN, Jefferson City:
Guitar whipped Poindexter again yesterday. Porter and Poindexter are used up. Coffee has been driven south again. Now is your time to strike Hughes and Quantrill. Let the blow be quick and overwhelming. It will not do to act on the defensive.
