Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

I have forgotten what I did. Oh! now I remember. Aunt Patsy came and spent the day. Warped the piece for the negroes dresses & hemmed it in the evening. It began to rain about three o’clock & rained a hard shower & continued to rain all evening. Aunt Patsy staid all night. Mr. Henry went to Asheville as it is court week. All are very well.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
