God of Nations will not give us peace untill we put slavery away from among us.

My Dear Friend Chuck

There is mourning, mourning, mourning North and South on account of this wicked and cruel war. I believe it is as true that in a nation will not go unpunished as in an individual. This war is taking away the strength and in many instances the best blood of our nation. It is evident the God of Nations will not give us peace untill we put slavery away from among us. I am astonished that there is so much treason in the North and that so many honest men are blinded by the traitors. I hope there will be no attempt by our government to make peace until we can have it in a manner that God will approve?I am not married have never had one thought of it since my wife died, have never felt like talking about it.
