Governor of Va. to Col. John Thomas Gibson, Charlestown, Jefferson Co., Va. Instruct him to use such additional horses as may be necessary to accomplish the earliest practicable delivery.

Washington, October 17, 1859—7.50 P. M.

J. W. Garrett, Prest.

The President of the United States did not intend calling upon the Baltimore military, thinking there was sufficient force called into service from Hagerstown and Frederick, with the Marines, to answer all purposes.

J. W. Showacre

***
Baltimore, 10.40 A. M., October 17th, 1859.

Thos. H. Parsons,
Washington, D. C.

Go at once to Secretary of War, and get his instructions about special train to leave at one o'clock with troops, to put down riot at Harper's Ferry Armory. We have fully dispatched him and President of United States. If this is done, it will require not over two or three cars, which you can send with yard engine to Relay, under your own charge; so as not to interfere with 3.20 train. If this cannot be arranged in time, send troops by latter train, for our regular Express west.       
W. P. SMITH.

***

Washington, Oct. 17th, 1859—12.22 P. M.

W. P. Smith :

Troops will leave on Express this evening. I will leave the cars containing them at Relay.
T. H. PARSONS.
