Cornelia H., age 32, North Carolina

Snow melting on the south sides slowly still cold nights. Mr Henry about the house all day. We have some few lambs, buck killed one last week he is a bad horse. I saw him running with Pinck to day it frightened me. I must stop now and take Siddie as Pinck is tired of him I know. Mr Henry and the children have gone to bed.  *(Henry Family Papers, 1837-1911, North Carolina Room, Pack Library, Asheville, NC)
