Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

Mr. Henry went to Asheville this morning. Nothing new over there. I got a letter from Sister Jane, also one from Lena. I have not heard from either in some time before. Sister Jane will be confined soon. I hope she may pass safely through. I began Pinck a pair drawers but did not finish them. I helped Atheline put in her quilt. Cold & cloudy yet.
