Cornelia H., age 27, North Carolina

Finished the last of the babie’s gowns today. They fit very well. Atheline is working in the field as the grass is growing very fast. Stephen’s hands came over today or rather yesterday evening. Some rain this morning, showery. We have had a great deal of rain.  *(Fear in North Carolina: The Civil War Journals and Letters of the Henry Family, Eds. Karen L.
