Colonel Jas. H. Ford to Captain James H. Steger
KANSAS CITY, August 5, 1864.
Capt. JAMES H. STEGER,
I have received reliable information that 240 bushwhackers are camped on Fishing River below Liberty, between there and Missouri City. I think only about sixty of them have crossed the river, but all the leaders are on this side to consult with Todd and Quantrill about forming a junction and arrange programme for operations.
JAS. H. FORD,
Colonel, Commanding Fourth Sub-District.
