"Timothy S Paul Chaplain of 8th Regiment of Kentucky Volunteers asks
leave of absence from his regiment ten days to go to his home in Clay County, KY, 125
miles for the following reasons, Since I entered the service and RECENTLY my house and all
its contents were burnt together with most of my familys wearing apparel.
Consequently my family have been rendered destitute & are upon the charity of other
for shelter and food. a portion of my family are quite sick. It is absolutely
necessary that I should go home and provide them a house & supply them with necessary
comforts. It will take eight days to make the journey on horseback the only mode of
travel, no mail(possibly rail) facilities worth anything to point. I then want two
days at home to provide for my family when I will promptly return to my regt.
I hope the Commander of the Department of the Ohio will grant me the leave. 8th day of March 1862 Respectfully
Timothy S Paul
