Colonel Jas. H. Ford to Major General S. R. Curtis

KANSAS CITY, July 31, 1864.

 Maj. Gen. S. R. CURTIS:

From the best information that I can get Quantrill with 400 or 500 men, raised from La Fayette, Johnson, Jackson, and Saline Counties, are concentrated at Texas Prairie, southwest of Lexington, preparatory to making a raid somewhere, he says, into Kansas. I leave for Independence immediately.


Colonel, Commanding.

(Same to General McKean.)
