Scope and Contents

George Price writes to Abraham after not hearing from his cousin since the spring, and wonders whether "you have all pigged out or turned abolitionists and dont wish to correspond with copperhead Cousins." He mentions that his brother Joseph returned home on 19 June, and expresses uncertainty about his political beliefs: "Joe," he writes, "is sound as a buck physically but I dont know how his pulse beats Politically[.] I guess maybe Hed vote the Democratic ticket says he is a Democrat I know hes no nigger man[.]" George's ambivalence about his brother's politics seems to be consistent with Joseph's 3 May 1865 letter to Abraham, in which he appears to express doubts about the Copperheads.
