Cornelia H., age 32, North Carolina

I have sewed some on Pincks pants I tend Siddie so I can’t get much done. We had a heavy fall of snow last night the trees all laden with it all the mountains have on their bridal robes it is a beautiful scene. The children rode to school. They came back very cold. The bushes were so bent over the road, it has been very cold since morning.  *(Henry Family Papers, 1837-1911, North Carolina Room, Pack Library, Asheville, NC)
