Cameron: "….The recent reports touching the disaster which befell a part of the ?Seventh Regular Cavalry, led by General Custer in person, are believed to be true. For some reason as yet unexplained , General Custer, who commanded the Seventh Cavalry…attacked enourte a large Indian village with only a part of his force, having himself detached the rest with a view to intercept the expected retreat of the savages, and experience an utter annihilation of his immediate command. The forces of Generals Terry and Gibbon reached the field of battle the next day, rescued fifty-two wounded men and buried two hundred and sixtyone dead men, including Lieut. Col. George A. Custer…"; followed by the full text of telegram of Gen. Alfred Terry, being his report of action of June 25th, datedlined "Camp on the Little Big Horn River, June 27," in which he begins: "It is my painful duty to report that day before yesterday, the 25th instant, a great disaster overtook General Custer and the troops under his command…"
