HEADQUARTERS TROOPS IN THE FIELD,
Fayette, Mo., September 14, 1864.
Brigadier General C. B. FISK:
I returned to this place last night from scout. Heard of no large bands. I went into the vicinity of Old Franklin and Rocheport. On Sunday my train coming from Glasgow was attacked. My escort, twenty-five strong, charged them; killed 1, wounded 1, and captured 3 horses and equipments. On Monday my command killed 5 guerrillas; captured 7 horses and 12 pistols, with loss of 1 horse killed. The last five killed were Anderson's men-some of their bridles being decked with human scalps. Captain Mayo was in command of the advance when he came upon five a house. He charged them; killed 3 of the five, and captured all their horses; one of these horses had scalps on the bridle. I am compelled to rest my horses and shoe them up. Major Leonard is out.
