Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

Mr. Henry started to Haywood this morning to buy meat. I did but little today. Mrs. Fanning put the cloth through the harness slay, started it to weave. I fear it will do but little good. Dan Hawkins came to work here today.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
