Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

I arose early this morning. Cool enough for fire. I fixed my things for going to Cousin Sam Gudger’s. Mr. Henry went with me to Col. Moore’s as Cousin Mary & I went in our buggy. Took Willie, left Zona & Pinck at home. Got there about 10 o’clock & enjoyed the day & night finely. Took a walk in the evening. Carried Hanes along to help with Willie.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
