The Insurrection at Harper's Ferry
Plane No. 4, Oct. 18th, 1859—3.30 P. M.
J. W. Garrett,
L. M. Cole,
Our train, with military for Baltimore, passed No. 4 at 2.45 P. M., and we hope to get to Baltimore by 5 o'clock. Major Russell, the hero of the fight, is with me, on his way to report at Washington, and will represent the strong need of a continued guard over the Armory of Government, and over our bridge, as a national highway for the mails.
Baltimore, Oct. 18th, 1859.
Communicate to the authorities our anxiety that our friend and guest, Mr. Rosengarten, (a director of Pennsylvania R. R. Company, arrested by the military,) shall be promptly released from imprisonment and allowed to join his party awaiting him here, by the earliest train.
JOHN W. GARRETT, Pres't.
