Second Report on The Millican Affair.
Office L. A. C. 20th Sub. Dist. Bu. R. F. AND A. L.,
Millican, Texas, August 4, 1868.
Charles B. Vernon, Lieut, 4th U.S. Cav., A. A. G., Austin, Texas:
I have the honor to make the following additional report, also a correction of my report of the 23d ult.
A freedman named idle has been missing since the riot of the 15th ult., and it is feared he is killed.
In my report of the 23d ult. I stated it as my opinion that Holiday gave the first fire-&c. Since writing the above-mentioned report, I have become convinced, by the evidence of several reliable witnesses, that I have done Holiday and the whites injustice in said opinion.
Mr. G. A. Wheat states that he saw the gun fire in the hands of a freedman, which statement is corroborated by two other witnesses. This mistake would not have been made had I seen the affidavits of G. A. Wheat and Deputy Sheriff Potilla, which were furnished Bvt. Lieut. Col. W. T. Gentry.
I am, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
N. H. Brandlett, L. A. C.
