Cornelia H., age 26, North Carolina

Court in Asheville this week. Mr. Henry went. He is not at all well. Joe Russell & Mr. Furgerson came home with him & stay all night. It was late when they came (dark). We had not had supper. Very cool this evening. I have been quilting a little today. Mr. Henry had a chill after he got home & a high fever. I fear he will be sick.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L. Clinard and Richard Russell, used with permission.)
