Letter, Annie Gaston to her sister, Loulie Feemster, who has apparently joined Alex in Selma. She tells her sister not to expect a long letter because she lives ''in the back woods where I dont see nobody hardly.'' She writes about ducks and guinea fowl and wants Loulie to tell Mattie that if she comes back, she will give her a ''guinea of her own and a chicken too,'' as well as ''a big red apple.'' She tells Loulie that their father needs silver to get the cloth from Mrs. Neelly. Sue's baby, Joe, and their sister Lelia have had the whooping cough. She writes that the ''servants'' send their love. 1864.
