Cornelia H., age 26, North Carolina

I finished Atheline’s dress, washed the children & put them on clean clothes & cut some apples. We have out now what will make two bushels when dry, I think. Mr. Henry went to Asheville this afternoon. Late when he came back. We had had supper. Jim Parker is home on a short furlough. Mr. Henry had a letter from Harrie yesterday. He is well & speaks in high terms of his coffee. He is Maj. Deaver now.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
