Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

Mr. Henry heard yesterday no salt at salt lick. The government bought it for two months so going to try some other market. I began to turn my old calico dress bottom side up to make them last a little longer as calico dear to purchase now. Willie a little pill. Hanes can’t do anything with him.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
