John W. Garrett to William A. Gorton, October 26, 1859

Baltimore, Oct. 26th, 1859.
W. A. Gorton, Agent, Martinsburg:

Superintendent Barbour telegraphs that aid may be required at Harper's Ferry to-night to protect property—as a band from New York threatens rescue. If our further advices render it necessary, how many military may be relied on from your vicinity this evening? Reply promptly.

J. W. GARRETT, Pres't.
