Cornelia H., age 26, North Carolina


I cut Charlie, Hanes & Lonzo two shirts each this morning. Made one of Lonzo & began his other one. I got a letter from Mr. Henry this evening written in a pamphlet. Vic brought it. He is very well, wants the waggon to start up there to him Thursday. It has been raining a slow rain nearly all day. Atheline at work out today. Fannie does the cooking. Mr. Boyd came this evening. He has not done the loom yet. He is a very slow workman but a good one.
