Colonel Charles W. Blair to General McKean
FORT SCOTT, April 27, 1864.
I don't think Quantrill intended to strike Kansas at all. It looks to me as if he proposed hanging on the Santa Fe road, west of the settlement, and robbing the outgoing and incoming trains. If this be so he will strike again and cross further west. It may be well to see if any protection can be afforded to such trains.
CHARLES W. BLAIR,
Colonel, Commanding First Brigade.
