Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina


I felt very unwell all day with headache but made two pair pants for negroes and attended to Willie as Atheline cooked. Jinnie & Fannie ploughing trying to get in wheat. All well but Charlie, he has measles. None of the others taken them yet.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
