Cornelia H., age 26, North Carolina

Mail brought nothing new. It has been reported for several days that Watson Cannon is dead. H. Cannon started to Richmond last week. I hope he is not dead. His mother was here today. She is very low spirited about him. I sewed some on Charlie’s pants today.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
