Major-General J. M. Schofield to Brigadier-General Ewing
SAINT LOUIS, MO., August 24, 1863.
Brigadier-General EWING, Kansas City:
I will send six companies of the Eleventh Missouri Cavalry (240 men) to Sedalia, with orders to report to you. Send them orders at Sedalia. I will also direct General Brown to give you all the force he can spare temporarily. Would it not be well to call on the Governor of Kansas to furnish you a militia force to guard your posts a short time so that your whole cavalry [force] can be put in the field after Quantrill? Spare no means by which he may be destroyed.
J. M. SCHOFIELD,
