|Title:||Letter, Loulie Feemster to Alex W. Feemster; 08/1/1863|
Letter from Loulie Feemster to her husband, Alex W. Feemster, in Selma, Alabama. She begins by telling him about a social visit and her friends' babies, one of whom is ''not hurt with beauty.'' She tells him that Willie (possibly Alex's brother, William), who had been ''quite sick'' before he left camp, had come to visit with a Lieutenant Davis, and that Willie still seems ill and weak. She writes about her boil and breastfeeding and that Mattie and herself are both doing well. 1863.
