1862 November 14 Chapel Hill, N.C.

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

Friday  Still threatning rain--We have had two agreeable surprises
to day in the unexpected arrivals of friends--At Eleven OClock
Mrs Armand DeRosset & her son Armand drove up to the Hotel
& I invited them into my room as there was no fire in the parlor.
She came to buy a house-& I think succeeded in getting a
nice one occupied by Mr Poole & belonging to Mrs Morrow-
The house they occupy in Hillsboro is very open & too small.
Since dinner there was a knock at my door & on opening
it--There stood James Bradley--He accompanied Eliza
Bradley up-& is staying at Mrs Hargraves--He looks very
badly but dont complain--Sarah has been sitting with
me all day--& little William playing about-
