Enclosed find your pass from Louisville to Nashville

Joseph Culver Letter, October 31, 1863, Letter 3, Page 1

Headqrs. Co. “A” 129th Ills. Vol. Infty.
Nashville, Tenn., Octr. 31st 1863

My Dear Wife

Enclosed find your pass from Louisville to Nashville. Telegraph from Louisville to me telling upon what train you will come. Should you arrive here in my absence, which is very probable, take a carriage at the Depot and go to the next to the last house on the right hand side of the South End of Summer Street (Mrs. Wilkinson’s). It is within a few feet of the Col’s. Headqrs. If either of our Co. officers are in camp, I will request them to meet you in my absence. You will board at our Headqrs. till I can make other arrangements.

Let us put our trust in God and submit cheerfully to his wise decrees. May he bless you.

Your Affect. Husband
J. F. Culver

P.S. By mistake the pass is for Mrs. Capt. Culver instead of Lieut. The Provost Marshall said it would pass thus.
