Cornelia H., age 26, North Carolina

I finished my pantletts by dinner & sewed them on the drawers. I put tape trimming on them & tucked them. They look very nice. Mrs. Fanning warped the thread for the boy’s pants today. I did not help about dinner any. Cool. I have had a slight toothache all day, not much.
