Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina


I fixed some window curtains out of some old sheets for the room upstairs over the hall. I cut out a shirt for Sam & one for Peter. Mr. Henry got a bolt of cloth. He had to give 25 cts. per yd. Dear cloth I think. I had a letter from Frank last Saturday. They are all well. Rained a little today.
