Soule to his sister, Annie Soule

Central City, Colorado Territory
Oct. 11, 1863

Dear Annie,
I received a letter from you a day or two ago and was much surprised to ascertain that you were in Maine for I
had not the least idea that you would go back, but I suppose you wanted to take a visit anyhow.  Do you think
Mother and Em will ever go back to Kansas?  I would like to see them when I get out of service.  I wrote to Em as
soon as I heard of the Lawrence raid and sent her $50.  Did she get it?  I hope so.  I have not written a letter for
so long that it is a task for me so I won’t write much.  Give my love to all the folks in Bath and everywhere you
may go.

I am on recruiting service now, have been for two months.  I like it well enough but it takes all my wages.  I am
Captain now and my pay is a little better than it was but I believe I will spend it as fast as I get it for I fear it will get
burned up if I try to save any.  This is not a very long letter, I only write to let you know I am all right.

Yours etc.
