1862 November 20 Chapel Hill, N.c.

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

Thursday  It has been so dark wet & drizzling all day that
every one has not only kept within doors--but in their rooms
Old  Mrs Walker Mrs Dr Malletts mother died to day--she was
just from Alabama--& tis supposed on her way here took the
cold that killed her -Pheumonia. she was taken to Hills
-boro for interment--I received a letter from Mrs [Have?]
lin this morning she seemed in great alarm about the
Yankees--Every body was moving their things from Bertie
& she is afraid little Willie may lose her negroes
