Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina


Mr. Henry & I went to Asheville today as the 25th Regiment of volunteers left there. Was a good many people in Asheville. I saw Rachel Miller there. Her husband is in the 6th Regiment. We went horse back. Came back to dinner. I had the headache all the evening badly. Took a nap but found no relief. Mr. Henry took a nap also, bought the children some toys. Two little dogs & an indian rubber ball.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
