Major General W. S. Rosecrans to Brigadier General Hovey
SAINT LOUIS, MO., September 15, 1864.
Quantrill is a spare built man with sandy hair and light complexion. Was educated at Carroll, Ohio, and came west to teach school. The man is a great scoundrel no doubt, but don't think he is Quantrill. The reason I asked for him is because we have a man who has Quantrill's photograph, and we could not trust him to leave here.
