“Racy Revelations Promised,” White Cloud Chief (White Cloud, KS), November 8, 1866.
“Gen. L. C. Baker, the detective notoriety, has been negotiating with P. C. Headley, to prepare his annals of the National Detective Bureau during the war. A phonographic reporter has been present at their sittings, taking down the words of the General for the use of the author. It may be imagined that the volume will be racy and highly sensational. Among other things which it will contain will be a very cruel blow at President Johnson's reputation, in the details of the case of Mrs. Cobb, the pardon broker, and some very interesting revelations in regard to the assassination conspiracy, including extracts from John Wilkes Booth's private diary. It is hinted that the forthcoming book will contain also some very shocking developments as to the complicity of prominent Northern men with the rebellion.”
