Colonel E. C. Catherwood to Brigadier-General Loan
Warrensburg, January 19, 1863.
Commanding District of Central Missouri:
GENERAL: Quantrill's band has again returned, said to number in all from 200 to 500 men. One squad of 50, in passing north near Germantown, captured 1 lieutenant and 4 men of the Enrolled Missouri Militia from that post. We captured one of the men. He stated that he belonged to Quantrill's original band, and that they had come up to winter. I sent out this morning 125 men in search of a band said to have camped at head of Davis' Creek yesterday.
Major Penney has shipped me 13,000 instead of 35,000 rounds of ammunition. Can I get the remainder? Please let me know what conclusion you have come to in reference to moving the two companies at Calhoun.
I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
E. C. CATHERWOOD,
Colonel, Commanding Post.
