At Hallie's Jan 17th 1864
Mr A. W. Feemster
My Own Darling Husband
As Capt. Worrell & Cady together with Aunt Bettie expect to pass through Selma I thought it would probably be the best opportunity that I had have soon of writing to you by hand. I received your letter from Meridan last Tuesday eve. & the Thread Thursday - am much obliged but fear you did not leave yourself enough funds to pay your expenses on your lengthened trip. I said something about it to Emma & she suggested the idea that if you needed money you could sell your watch I felt easier then. I am sorry you were detained wished that you had staid until Monday. But wishes & regrets are alike vain. No doubt the hand of Providence was in it. He sees not as we see.
Hallie sends her best respects says she was sorry she didn't get to see you
