[from the diary of Eliza Oswald Hill, refugee from Wilmington, N.C.]
Monday 7th--It is cloudy & chilly this morning which will
prevent our paying visits--Liz will change her room today--
Will come just above me, in one of the rooms Mrs. Greenhow
left--I have had a long cheerful letter from Joe--He had
returned to his family--Sent to Early by his regiment to
attend to a variety of things for them. All well in Georgia--
Eliza received a letter from Virginia.
