September 4, 1863, Little Sante Fe, Mo.,
Captain C. F. Coleman to Brigadier-General Ewing

September 4, 1863.

 Brigadier-General EWING,
Commanding District of the Border,
Kansas City:

SIR: Since I came to camp I have received information that the rebels, under Quantrill, will start south to-morrow, or between now and the next two days, and from what I can learn they do not intend any raid into Kansas. I would suggest that, if there is any cavalry at Lexington, Mo., they be ordered out after them. I will start, with all my available force, for Pleasant Hill this evening. I hear to-day that Star was killed yesterday by one of Todd's men.

Respectfully, your obedient servant,


Captain, Commanding.
