Bell on War

Mary Bell to Alfred W. Bell, March 5, 1862 -
Whilst some are made to mourn all the days of their lives on account of some dear one who had died whilst fighting for their country, others will be glorying in the wealth they have made by staying at home and speculating while the war was going on and other poor wretches were fighting for them. - (The Bells were from Macon County, NC. Alfred was serving as a captain in the Confederate army)
