Letter, Alex W. Feemster in Selma, Alabama, to his wife, Loulie Feemster. He writes that he saw the Royal Arch degree (a Masonic rank) conferred. He assures her that ''it is not in me to love a dollar'' and refers to ''The Widow Bedott'' stories by Frances M. Whitcher. He writes about being more practical than idealistic when it comes to duty. He tells her of a sermon he heard and that Charly Harper just went home on a 25-day furlough. 1863.
