United States Case Against Patrick Brady, Missouri, January, 1862

Patrick Brady, of Missouri, was arrested by order of Brigadier-General Grant, commanding at Cairo, Ill., and on the 16th of January, 1862; was given into the custody of U. S. Marshal Phillips, of Illinois, who by direction of the Secretary of State conveyed Brady to Fort Lafayette. January 16, 1862, General Grant telegraphed to the Secretary of State that the persons named (Brady and others) are very dangerous men and ought to be permanently secured. On the same day U. S. Marshal Phillips wrote to the Secretary of State that Brady and Perkins are both rebel emissaries and desperate men. General Grant deemed it unsafe and unwise to keep them in charge near his army, and hence turned them over to me for your disposition. The said Patrick Brady remained in custody at Fort Lafayette February 15, 1862, when he was transferred to the charge of the War Department.
