Captain O. F. Waller to Colonel C. W. Blair

OLATHE, KANS., May 5, 1865.

 Col. C. W. BLAIR,

Report received at these headquarters to-day from Lieutenant Dunlap, of this command, stationed at Aubrey, on the Missouri line, states that the bushwhackers in that vicinity are concentrating and becoming bold and troublesome. They are twenty-seven strong; appear to have horses and arms. Reports rumors that Quantrill is on his way up, and thinks that we may look for a second edition of the Lawrence raid at an early day. Have ordered troops with all serviceable horses at this post to the border.



 Captain, Commanding Post.
