Captain M. U. Foster to Captain J. H. Steger

HOLDEN, August 23, 1864.

 Capt. J. H. STEGER,
Assistant Adjutant-General:

Have just learned on pretty good authority that Quantrill and Yeager, with about 200 men, are in the vicinity of Walnut Creek, twelve miles west of this place, and that they will attack us to-night to release a lot of prisoners we have. Their force is said to be scattered, and that 200 can be concentrated. I feel no apprehension, however.


Captain, Commanding.
