Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

My head felt very badly before dinner but after dinner Atheline & I went up to hotel place & got some shrubery & planted it out that evening. I began to work my other pillow slip after dinner, did nothing at it. Atheline hemmed on her quilt before dinner. Warm & pleasant. Mary Taylor came down with us.
