Cornelia H., age 31, North Carolina

The old year will soon be numbered among the things that were. Mr Henry about the mill. We have had very pleasant weather for the time of year till now. I wove some this morning on mine and Zona’s balmoral. Matt is going to weave them while I make her wedding chemise. Snowing nearly all day.  *(Henry Family Papers, 1837-1911, North Carolina Room, Pack Library, Asheville, NC)
