Major General W. S. Rosecrans to Brigadier General C. B. Fisk
SAINT LOUIS, September 23, 1864.
Brig. Gen. C. B. FISK,
Use your utmost vigor now. Perkins, Todd, Quantrill, Thrailkill, Anderson, and all the other rascals, are now in Boone and Howard, and will try to get west and south. Watch the gaps north and west, and drive steadily and with all sharpness and vigor, and you will crush and destroy the rascals. Get every one you can on the watch to intercept and get news.
W. S. ROSECRANS,
