Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina


I finished Zona’s tatten for her chimise & sewed it on in the evening. Cut out some drawers for myself, two pair & a skirt for Zona. Going to put the trimming on that. Matt gave her some rose tatting. Went down to the mill with Mr. Henry, took Willie & Zona.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
