1862 November 12 Chapel Hill, N.C.

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

Wednesday 12th  Mrs Walters has been packing up to leave for Fayette
Ville--I have been writing & sewing all Morning--& in the afternoon
had several visitors-received another letter from Liza saying
she was dreadfully homesick--& had received the long looked for
bonnet from Petersburg & it was a fright--So ugly she had to
return it---she had also been disappointed in getting the linen
What she is to do I know not--

MSS 6960
