Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina


I wrote to Dora, Sister Jane & Lou & want to hear from them soon. It has been some time since I hear from any of them. Mr. Henry, Pinck & I went over in the widening to see the young cattle & back by the hotel place. Cool & foggy this morning. Got the cloth warped by Mrs. Fanning on Saturday last, not put it in today. I did but little work, helped pick wool a little. Zona had a slight fever last night.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
