Scope and Contents

George Price writes about another "coming draft . . . this time the draft is much heavier than before and Eldorado has to bear its share and I think a little more[.]" The quota for the township is now at 31, he writes, and people voted to tax themselves to raise money to hire volunteers, before another man "offered to get Volunteers to fill our quota at $500 for each man[.] the offer was accepted $6500 were raised at a special meeting called for that purpose[.]" At the time of writing, 25 of the 31 spots had been filled. George also mentions that he receives letters from his own substitute, who writes that he is "enjoying himself" and "got an appointment as a bugler[.]"
