Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina


Mail came, no news. I had a letter from Mr. Henry today. He is quite well. Was in Greenwood S. C. the 25th, going to Augusta the 26th. I suffered all day with headache, in bed part of the day. Read all the papers but nothing new. The children all well, staid out all day on account of my head.
