Cornelia H., age 24, North Carolina

Drisley rain this morning. Mr. Reynolds preaches today at the Academy. There are several men here this morning to hear the news. I think they are not doing much at the seat of war. I will stop soon & take the babe. Zona can talk nearly anything she tries. Pinck is a large healthy boy.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds.
