1862 November 15 Chapel Hill, N.C.

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

Saturday 15th  Again Cloudy--Katy has brought me two letters from
the office one from Mary-all well in Georgia--& one from
Lucy Jewett--Sarah read last night until after ten O Clock but
we did not finish the book--Another nights pleasant reading
yet--Judge Osborne was at breakfast this morning & chatted away
very pleasant--Just as we were going to tea Mr Tom Mears drove up, on
his way to a plantation he has bought near Salisbury--He has 9 children
of all sizes & it was really a pretty sight--They will remain over Sunday
& then leave.
