Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

Mail came, no news of importance. I did but little work, picked wool after dinner. Ham Rollins came by in the evening & Mary went home. Mr. Henry went to Asheville after dinner & staid after supper. Col. Bill Jones staid all night here. All are well. Having pretty weather at present.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
