Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

Zona had a fever last night. Her face broke out with something. Albert Hawkins just left, came after some papers. Mr. Henry about somewhere. I must write some letters today without fail. Jim Parker has been working with the hands as overseer some two weeks.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
