Cornelia H., age 26, North Carolina


Had toothache all day. Did nothing till late in the evening. Began a bonnet for Zona, some that was left of Willie’s dress Sister Jane gave him. Willie will have one like it. Rain all day. Mr. Henry staid with me all day.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
