1862 December 1 Chapel Hill, N.C.

[from the diary of Eliza Oswald Hill, refugee from Wilmington, N.C.]

Moday 1st of December--No box again from Charlotte--One letter from
Mary Wilson--Eliza & Mrs Campbell have gone to Raleigh to shop &

have Eliza's dresses made--this has been a singular day--one hour
bright sunshine--the next as dark as night--Now & then a heavy
shower--Sarah doesn't feel well--William as lively as a bird--The scarlet
fever is prevailing which worries Sarah very much--No letter from Liz
I cant account for her silence.

MSS 6960
