Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

I cut Mr. Henry a pair pants this morning but did not get them made today. There was several here this morning hunting salt. Some got & others did not. The waggons came today. Jeff Davis (my dog) was glad to see me. Jim Knight is tired of his trip. Mr. Henry went to Academy.
