Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

I made Jinnie a bonnet & Pinck a pair of jean pants. Was busy all day. I cut out some shirts for Charley. Atheline sewing on them. Charley is not well today. Aunt Tena thinks it is from eating sugar cane as they have been cutting it down. Stanopher Jones makes it up for half. I have been very sore all day from my ride yesterday.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
