Cornelia H., age 32, North Carolina


I had the worst spell of head ache last Wednesday I ever had. I thought I would die. I was so sick Mr Henry was in town. Mary Rollins was sewing for me it took her and Matt most of their time to hold my head it is nearly well to day I am very thankful my life was spared.  *(Henry Family Papers, 1837-1911, North Carolina Room, Pack Library, Asheville, NC)
