Cornelia H., age 31, North Carolina

They finished spooling this evening and I finished my dress. It fits neatly. Matt is getting ready to marry the sixteenth of next month. Mr Henry about the farm and mill. George is employed there again. It is a great trial to me. Knowing how he has treated me. I never can forget it but I can’t help myself.  *(Henry Family Papers, 1837-1911, North Carolina Room, Pack Library, Asheville, NC)
