Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina


I slept late this morning & felt dull all day. Aunt Tena not well. Atheline ironing. I made 27 sacks for flour & attended Willie. He weighs 22 lbs., Zona 28 lbs. & Pinck 45 lbs. I, 120 lbs. I ironed some too. After dinner Mr. Henry & I went up to Sulphur Spgs., saw a good many volunteers going home. It was very warm walking, about 4 o’clock when I got back.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
