Cornelia H., age 32, North Carolina

Mr Henry gone all day hunting a cook he does not like for me to do so much drudgery. Willie went to school. I missed him a great deal about Siddie. Gussie and Eddie play with him they do the best they can. Mr Henry did not get home till supper was over. I was uneasy about him. He brought Lizzie Cochram with him. I hope she may be satisfied.  *(Henry Family Papers, 1837-1911, North Carolina Room, Pack Library, Asheville, NC)
