Letter from Anna Mason Ambler to husband, Selma, AL, Feb. 10, 1862

A very interesting letter from a wife to her husband, discussing family including a baby boy. She is concerned about Ft. Donelson and the advancing federals, and is proud of the work the ladies are doing making military clothing.

    It just dawned on me who Anna Mason Ambler is--she is the daughter of John Mason, of Virginia, commissioner to Great Britain and was, with John Slidell, involved in the Trent Affair. This letter mentions the family concerns with her father's trip.
