Description

Letter from Loulie Feemster to her husband, Alex W. Feemster, in Selma, Alabama, mainly regarding a boil on her breast, which makes it difficult to feed their baby, Mattie. The doctor recommended that she use ''Tansy poultice'' on it, but she followed the advice of her Aunt Edith and used raw cabbage leaves, which she found ''very soothing.'' She mentions that she thought she would have child-bed fever. 1863.
