MRS. JULIA B. NELSON arrived in Red Wing some days ago from her trip through Europe. Some of her very interesting and entertaining letters we have published, descriptive not only of events in America, but also to a limited extent relating to what she saw in Europe. She is an earnest worker in educating the freedmen. Teaching former slaves. We believe it is her intention to remain here until the disappearance of yellow fever End of an outbreak of yellow fever, a contagious and deadly disease. makes the South again habitable.
