Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

I cut out Jim & John a coat & made Jim’s cut of the cloth. Mrs. Fanning wove in old loom. I worked faithful all day and attended Willie. Mr. Henry went to Asheville yesterday also today. Harrie Deaver in Asheville quite sick, relaps of measles. Looks badly.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
