Scope and Contents

George Price writes that his brother "Joe" requested some of his cousins' addresses (Abraham does indeed begin to receive letters from Joseph Price in early 1864). He returns to the topic of the upcoming national election, and goes on to reveal the extent of his anti-abolitionist sentiments: "It dont do me any good to hear of the Butternuts being thrashed in fact I feel better when the Rebs get the upper hand[.] if the Infernal Abolitionists were all in the Army it would do me good to hear of them being thrashed like Hell as I am sure they would be[.] as it is I feel sorry for all except Abolitionists that have to face the tide of Battle[.]"
