Cornelia H., age 26, North Carolina


I have made another napsack & sewed some on Fannie’s dress. Mrs. Fanning sent the last of the cloth here this morning. Fannie baked two turkeys & some crackers & ginger cakes, also boiled a ham for Mr. Henry to take along with him. He has gone to Asheville this evening, did not get back till after we eat supper.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
