Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

I had a dreadful headache all day, took some salts but got no relief. Preaching at the Academy today. The darkies all gone or nearly so. Aunt Tena is not well. Atheline did not go nor Fannie either. Pinck went with Jinnie. I slept nearly all the evening. Cloudy all day.
