Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

Mrs. Vance & Mrs. Robertson left this morning for Asheville. Mrs. Jervis spent the day at camps so I was alone. No, Mrs. Jervis was here for dinner, also Leut. Henry & a Roberts (the acting adjutant). We had turkey & duck for dinner. I made some tatting today.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
