Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

Mail came but brought nothing new. Mr. Henry started to Henderson with a load of flour, to come back tomorrow. Atheline & I put up a bed in the side room this evening. It was very warm & a great deal of trouble.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
