Title
Letter from James C. Pass to Mary Franklin Pass
Description
Letter from Jamie [James C. Pass] in Reedy Fork, N.C. to his dearest, likely his wife Mary Franklin Pass in Faison, N.C., regarding treasonous activities occurring in southern Guilford County, N.C and upper Randolph County, N.C. The Tories and [Ganders?] are described roaming the area committing acts of depredations, employees of the railroad are thinking of quitting in protest of the war, and the Quaker and abolitionist Frank Caldwell's activities are mentioned. Pass describes an upcoming meeting of the "true" men of Greensboro who support the Confederacy to discuss what will be done about the problem, and he expresses his thoughts on the matter naming individuals from the area involved on both sides.
