September 8, 1863, Lexington, Mo.,
Lieutenant-Colonel B. F. Lazear to General Ewing

LEXINGTON, September 8, 1863.

 General EWING:

No sign of Quantrill yet. I advised Colonel Neill not to break up camp yet, as we were able to take care of Lexington. 1 will try and find out today if Quantrill is anywhere in the country. There is a report here that Quantrill crossed the river last night. No truth in the report, I think. If he is on the river, we can corner and capture him by letting him have a day or two to settle.
