Cornelia H., age 26, North Carolina

I finished Zona’s dress just after dinner & cut out a pea green chambra dress for her, one Sister Jane gave her when we were down there. Dr. Neilson was here this evening, thinks Atheline a good deal better. He staid some time. Mr. Henry went to Asheville this morning, came home to dinner, is at the dam this evening. Hanes out in the field. Lonzo attends to Willie today. Hanes stays till 9 o’clock or till after I get the house cleaned.
