[from the diary of Eliza Oswald Hill, refugee from Wilmington, N.C.]
Saturday 24th I am quite unwell to day--The exercise was too
much for me yesterday--I retired to bed early but did not sleep well
It is rainy-cloudy, & dull--Jessie has been over to tell me Katy
has another chill--I am afraid she is going to be ill--no letter for any
of us. 4 young gentlemen called on the young ladies tonight.
