Description

Letter, Loulie Feemster to her husband, Alex W. Feemster, in Selma, Alabama. She writes about a revival taking place among the Masons and tells him about some acquaintances who have joined. She also names people who have made professions at the church. She tells him how Mattie, who is now three months old, is doing, and expresses concern because she has already seen ''will manifested.'' She emphasizes that she would rather be with him in Selma than anywhere else, even if she has to live in poor conditions. She tells him that Mattie had a cold, and that she used ''Tinct. Lobelia & Hive Syrup'' on it. She writes that Jimmie Cox was conscripted and tried to get out of it, but was unable to do so. 1863.
