NEW ORLEANS, October 22, 1864.
Lieut. Col. C. T. CHRISTENSEN,
COLONEL: I have just received the following dispatch:
OPPOSITE DONALDSONVILLE, October 22, 1864.
The rebels, supposed to number nearly 100, plundered the Home Farm, Miles Taylor's plantation, six miles below on the bayou, last night, cutting the Napoleonville telegraph line; how bad I do not know. Will send out men to fix it.
W. F. FRENCH,
W. G. FULLER,
Captain, Assistant Quartermaster and Assistant Superintendent.
Copy furnished General Hurlbut, October 22, 1864, with remark that these rebels are probably portion of Quantrill's command mentioned in General Lawler's dispatch.
