Cornelia H., age 31, North Carolina

Still cold, a bad time on stock as we have neither cow nor sheep house. Mr Henry is going to have shelters made for them soon. Mrs Sutton and Ann spooling. I have been sewing on my dress. Pinck and Zona at school today. We only eat twice a day now.  *(Henry Family Papers, 1837-1911, North Carolina Room, Pack Library, Asheville, NC)
