Brevet Major General Alvin P. Hovey to Major General Rosecrans
HEADQUARTERS DISTRICT OF INDIANA,
Indianapolis, September 15, 1864.
Commanding, &c. :
I herewith send you a copy of the article which led to the apprehension of Hart, alias Burgess, alias Quantrill. Several men of undoubted character have visited him and say that he is Quantrill. There is a strange delusion if he is not the man. All the evidence so far is very strong against him, and would convict him before any jury in the country.
I have the honor to be, your obedient servant,
ALVIN P. HOVEY,
Brevet Major-General, Commanding.
