Assistant Adjutant-General E. P. Turner to Brigadier-General McCulloch

HOUSTON March 31, 1864.

 Brigadier-General MCCULLOCH:

I am instructed by Major-General Magruder to say that information has been received at these headquarters that there are a number of men roaming about in your district, dressed in Federal uniforms, who represent themselves to belong to Quantrill's command. The major-general commanding is informed that all kinds of outrages are being committed by the devils in the northern districts and by persons wearing uniforms You will at once cause all of these men to be conscripted and placed in the service, unless they can prove satisfactorily that they belong to Quantrill's command, in which case they will be ordered to join their command forthwith. You will ascertain from Captain Quantrill whether these men are borne on his muster-rolls, and all who are not so borne will be conscripted without delay.


Assistant Adjutant-General.
