Cornelia H., age 31, North Carolina

Pinck went to the bottom. Very cold Matt dying the clothes by the fire as she is expecting company next week. I finished mine and Zona’s skirts and Eddies pants my skirt feels very comfortable. Zona is very much pleased with hers. Tom Quin has left us lice and all, I am glad of it.  *(Henry Family Papers, 1837-1911, North Carolina Room, Pack Library, Asheville, NC)
