Cornelia H., age 26, North Carolina

I sewed on Willie’s flannel. Working it with a dark wood shade. Mrs. G. Reynolds was here a while this afternoon. She is a very pleasant lady. Very pleasant but needing rain. Nothing new. Bushel of salt from Capt. Moore last Wednesday. Very nice Virginia salt, it is very white.
