Not long after the return of the expedition, Governor Reynolds published in a Marshall (Texas) paper a long communication, reviewing the generalship of the commander of the expedition and criticising him in scathing terms. General Price took no notice of it at the time, but his friends replied to it; and at last it created so much feeling, one way and the other, that General Price was compelled to ask for a court of inquiry. His request was complied with, and the court consisted of Brigadier-Gen-erals Drayton and McNair and Colonel Luckett, Maj. Oscar Watkins being judge advocate. Col. R. H. Musser, of the Ninth Missouri infantry, was General Price's military friend. The court delayed action from time to time, until finally the crash came, and it disappeared in the general wreck.
