FORT SCOTT, KANS., March 10, 1865.
HENRY M. ATKINSON,
Deputy Provost-Marshal, Brownsville, Nebr. Ter.:
The two young Marchbanks are the worst sort of bushwhackers. The old man is not. Bill Marchbanks is as bad as Quantrill. The others, I suspect, belong to some band under other names. Please arrest all but the old man, and if possible send here. Descriptions sent by mail. Iron them heavily, as no guard-house will hold them.
CHAS. W. BLAIR,
Colonel Fourteenth Kansas Volunteer Cavalry, Commanding.
