Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina


Mrs. Henry Cook & Cordelia Cook came here this morning on Thursday to church, we all went. Mr. Henry, Pinck & I heard a good serman from Dr. Cummings. Mr. Renolds was there too. We did not keep past day. I had a dreadful headache that night, went to bed before supper. Atheline had to leave her supper & attend to the baby. A very warm day. All are well. Zona is very fretful, I think she has worms.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
