I sewed a little on Willie’s dress. Fannie has gone to weaving. I suffer a great deal all day with headache, had it all day till bed time. Mr. Henry in Asheville all day. The Regiment began to move today, will all get over soon in a day or two. Mary Rollins brought home some stocking yarn she had to spin. She is busy making clothes for R. W. Candler who is commissary for four or five counties to furnish clothes.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
