Cornelia H., age 26, North Carolina

Faced another skirt today. Mr. Henry gone up Hominy today. We had a little rain this evening, not enough to do any good. Mr. Henry will not be back tonight as it has rained. Atheline sleeps in the house tonight. I sold some butter last Friday at 25 cts. per lb, 4 lbs. I was up a good deal last night with my teeth, had to smoke them before they got better.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
