Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina


A more pleasant day but still cold. Aunt Patsey Jimerson spent Thursday here. Mr. Henry about the farm all day. We had two letters from Sister Jane. In one she sent me some little trimming, in the other she said she could come if he would meet her in Spartenberg if he would come after her. I am so very glad she is coming. Cut out three night caps for myself & mended one.
