1862 November 8 Chapel Hill, N.C.

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

Saturday  no letters--But unexpected company, about Eleven Oclock a
Hack drove up from Hillsboro' with Mrs Kennedy--Mrs Wm Lord
& Miss Lizzie DeRossett--There being no fire in the parlour (a very
common thing) I invited them into my room where it was more com
fortable--They remained with us until Henry London could procure
them another Hack to take them to Pittsboro' where they have now gone
Mrs Lord had a chill on her when she arrived--& I think left with
a fever--Mrs Walters & Sarah were lucky enough to receive their
trunks sent by Express from Mississippi--Little William is hoarse again tonight.
