Brigadier General E. B. Brown to Brigadier General C. B. Fisk
WARRENSBURG, MO., June 20, 1864--4.25 p.m.
Brig. Gen. C. B. FISK,
Saint Joseph, Mo.:
Truman is a great liar and scoundrel and has given information a number of times as to the whereabouts of Quantrill, none of which has proved true. The present story is with the view of obtaining his release. I have troops camped at Morgan Walker's farm, who know every foot of ground in the vicinity, which has been thoroughly scouted three different times within the last three days.
E. B. BROWN,
Brigadier-General of Volunteers, Commanding.
