Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

I was quite sick this morning for a while as the pills were operating but got better after breakfast. Jinnie & Atheline fixed the rooms upstairs. I superintended. Harrie is coming over after dinner to stay a few days.

Harrie came in the evening, looks like a shadow but is improving a good deal. He has rheumatism now. Willie not well yet, very fretful. Was sick & vomiting some today.
