Cut out Willie some linnin aprons, sewed but little as I attended to him. Tena, Atheline & the children picking wool. Looks like they will not get done soon. Jinnie get dinner and helps all she can. Mr. Boyd put up the loom that came from Stines this morning, will try to get it work next week. All are well. The days warm with cool mornings.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
