HEADQUARTERS DEPARTMENT OF KANSAS,
Fort Leavenworth, June 20, 1864.
Col. JAMES H. FORD,
Following has just been received:
I have a prisoner in jail who pretends to know to a certainty just where Quantrill is encamped in Jackson County. He says Quantrill will cross the Missouri River this week, and that he is now 1 mile southwest of the Blue Church, and 10 miles east of south from Morgan Walker's farm. The prisoner's name is Truman, and he has been a detective.
