Description

Letter, Loulie Feemster, Bigbee Bottom, Mississippi, to her husband, Alex W. Feemster, in Selma, Alabama, discussing her Bible reading, news from family and friends and the fact that she is 'lonely and gloomy.' She mentions a letter sent to her father by Dr. Waddell, who compares the impending battle to Armageddon and thinks it will decide their fate. She writes that someone went over to a neighbor's place and cut the skirts off some of the saddles. She writes disapprovingly of her sister Emma's flirtation with a Captain Skipper. She describes feeding some turkeys given to her by her mother. She also tells him that she wrote a sermon about Moses wanting to see Canaan, though she wasn't satisfied with it. 1863.
