Cornelia H., age 25, North Carolina

Cool & foggy. Corn doing but little. Uncle Jimmie Gudger was thrown from a mule & his neck broke today. Mr. Henry will not return tonight. Zona had a slight fever. Old Mr. Boyd is here trying to get the loom a going.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
