Cornelia H., age 24 North Carolina

Nothing of importance going on. Hon. Z. B. Vance’s company leave on Friday for Raleigh & then to Va. The weather has been rather cool for the time of year. The peaches all killed & a good many apples too. Dora & Matt dressed in boys clothes or rather in Mr. Henry’s a’right, we enjoyed it finely. Mr. Henry not come home yet. I am mistaken, he only started this day after dinner, to be back Friday.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
