Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

Trimmed mine & Zona’s scoops. Jim Welch eat dinner here. He is a volunteer, was unwell & going home from Raleigh on a furlough of a month. Mr. Henry loaned him the buggy. A warm day needing rain badly. The wheat has some rust on the leaves.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
