Cornelia H., age 26, North Carolina

I cut out some night caps but sewed but little at them. I finished the novel this evening. I am going to work one with turkey red point & tuck one & tatten & tuck the other. Mrs. Fanning brought me two small waiters from Asheville today. I gave 75 cts. for the two.
