Letter, Loulie Feemster to her husband, Alex W. Feemster, in Selma, Alabama, opening with news from the church. She says that not all the ministers were as enthusiastic as they should have been, but five professions were made. Willie has not heard from Lieutenant Steele and is still feeling ill. Sammie still hasn't recovered from a lightning strike, but he hasn't been able to get a furlough. Loulie has been sewing ''Government shirts'' but isn't happy with the pay. She feels that her way is dark and that she is not exactly in her sphere. She begs Alex to forgive ''our injurer'' (the slave mentioned in a previous letter?) for his own sake. She asks if he wants to have the baby baptized if he can't come to visit. 1863.
