Brigadier General E. B. Brown to Major O. D. Greene
KANSAS CITY, MO., May 26, 1864.
Maj. O. D. GREENE, Assistant Adjutant-General:
Twenty-five guerrillas attacked an escort for forage wagon on Little Blue, the 23d, killing 1 man and severely wounding another. They captured and partially burned the wagon and shot the mules. One guerrilla killed. They also cut the telegraph between Pleasant Hill and Warrensburg, carrying away 200 feet of wire. A scouting party Second Colorado killed 2 guerrillas on the 24th. They are becoming more numerous. This makes more to be killed. I regret to have to say that Quantrill was not killed.
E. B. BROWN,
Brigadier-General of Volunteers.
