Willie’s bowels well. I hope they may remain so. I faced the hem of an under skirt today. Nothing of interest going on. Very dry & warm, needing rain badly. Jim’s foot mending slowly. He is mending up some old chairs. Mail brought no news.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
