KANSAS CITY, July 31, 1864.
Capt. JAMES H. STEGER, Asst. Adjt. Gen.:
Quantrill intends striking some place this week. My best information says west, either Independence or Kansas City; I think it will be east. He can raise 400 men. I start for Independence in a few minutes. Will communicate with you from there.
