Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina


Sewed on old dresses, not done yet. Will not get through this week. Mr. Henry sent Taylor & Jim Night on Turkey Creek for apples, will be back tomorrow night to ( ? ) & to Augusta Saturday. Nothing of interest going on. Fannie went to Miss Tutt’s this evening to borrow her wheels to spin her stocking yarn and Tena washing. The hands still sowing wheat & gathering corn.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
