Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina


I sewed till about ten o’clock then Mr. Henry & I went to old Quinn’s to get some grapes. I eat a great many & had headache again this evening. We brought a good many home with us. Cool mornings & nights.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
