Cornelia H., age 31, North Carolina


I have done odds and ends all day we have only eaten twice a day yesterday and today. The children seem to like it very well. Siddie wants to try to walk he likes to pull up by any thing. Harriet is still here. Siddie does not like for her to nurse him.  *(Henry Family Papers, 1837-1911, North Carolina Room, Pack Library, Asheville, NC)
