Letter from M. J. Bell, Montgomery, Alabama, February 2, 1865

M. J. Bell (female) wrote a woman friend, consoling her about the loss of her infant, and telling her about visitors in Montgomery. She includes, "Our land has been clothed in mourning since those terrible battles before Atlanta and Indeed I feel I can never forgive Davis for the part he played for I feel that if Johnston had been left in command it would have been so different."
