Brigadier-General E. B. Brown to Major O. D. Greene
WARRENSBURG, Mo., July 5, 1864.
Maj. O. D. GREENE,
I have the honor to report that during the past week parties of guerrillas have been moving south, in some cases reporting that they were going to join Shelby, and some of the same parties have returned within the past two days. Reports received in the night inform me that several bands of guerrillas have reappeared on the line of Jackson and La Fayette Counties, and that a party of 100 was at Waverly yesterday morning commanded by Quantrill, and that others are coming in from the north side of the river, apparently concentrating for a raid. Our troops are moving in pursuit of them. I have telegraphed Colonel Hall, at Sedalia, to look out for a move toward Cooper County.
E. B. BROWN,
Brigadier-General of Volunteers, Commanding.
