Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

Cloudy this morning. The air feels like fall, cool nights. I have a bad cold & feel badly generally. Aunt Tena & Atheline picking wool. Mary Rollins came about 11 o’clock & helped all day. Got along slowly. I am fixing an under body.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
