1862 November 2 Chapel Hill, N.C.]

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

Sunday  we all attended Church-& were dreadfully annoyed with Wasps
which were flying all over the Church & lighting on every body-
received a letter from Eliza & one from Liz all well & getting along
pleasantly at Enfield--Noah says he will return to Tom but Liz
thinks he will eventually go over to the Yankees--Tom's bundle
is made up & only waiting for some one to take charge of Noah.  He
thinks he can get along alone--But Captain Mason thinks he may
meet with difficulty in getting from Petersburg to Richmond--

MSS  6960
