In the letter Pass discusses her fear that General Sherman's men will be forced to come near Goldsboro and they will be robbed of their possessions. She also details the panic caused amongst Black people at the prospect of conscription for the young men to fight and the young women to cook for the Confederate Army. She also details how Confederate General Robert F. Hoke is taking horses from the locals to use for the Artillery and Cavalry, how their farm might be affected without enslaved people or horses to work it, and the family news.
