[Letter from Joseph A. Carroll to Celia Carroll, November 8, 1861]

Description: Letter from Joseph A. Carroll to his wife Celia Carroll. He mentions that his company is in an unpopulated area of the country, and makes clear his opinions of men who are not fighting in the army. He tells Celia to tell the girls of Denton County not to associate with the men around town, and to wait until the soldiers come back to marry, as he considers them real men.
