Brigadier-General Jas. Totten to Major-General Schofield
JEFFERSON CITY, MO., October 13, 1863.
An engine with guard were at La Mine Bridge yesterday. Reported road all right, but heard nothing of rebels. Gentleman who was in Tipton while rebels were there, reports their officers said they would be joined by another force which had gone another route. He supposed they meant the party who attacked General Blunt. They also told him Quantrill and Jackman would join them, and they would go through to Iowa. Can you furnish Major Brown, at La Mine, a company of cavalry from Sedalia? He should have some for scouting, &c.
