Cornelia H., age 26, North Carolina

 I did nothing of consequence this day. Atheline has got tollerable stout again. Mr. Henry & I took a long walk this evening through the wheat & by the Guy house. The blades on the wheat are all dead from rust. He thinks the wheat not injured yet. We went by the hotel place. Mr. Henry is having the dirt dripped where the smoke house was to try to make salt of the water. It tastes salty. Fannie baked some pies & custards this evening & boiled a ham. There is preaching at Sardis tomorrow, quarterly meeting.  *(R. Henry Scadin Collection, D.H. Ramsey Library Special Collections, UNC Asheville)
