September 15, 1864, Saint Louis, Mo.,
Major General W. S. Rosecrans to Brigadier General Hovey

SAINT LOUIS, MO., September 15, 1864.

 Brigadier-General HOVEY,
Indianapolis, Ind.:

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.
