NINE MILES SOUTHEAST OF AUSTIN, MO.,
October 9, 1863--1.30 p.m.
Acting Assistant Adjutant-General:
Inclosed is copy of a dispatch from Colonel Lazear, in conformity with which I turn toward Rose Hill and Warrensburg, and expect to join Weer above Rose Hill. Have sent to Colonel Lynde to join me, if Quantrill is out of the way; otherwise not.
Use your cavalry to cover Independence, and, at the same time Pleasant Hill. I don't think they will go so far northwest.
THOMAS EWING, JR.,
