1863 January 19 Chapel Hill, N.C.

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

Monday 19th --Very cold indeed--Ice all over the streets.  It was
so cold last night I had to leave my bed & sit by the fire for
an hour to warm -- College is open again - but there has
but few students arrived as yet -- Mollie Cornick left for
St Mary's to day - She has been receiving so much attention
from the students that she will study very little I expect.
I have been very busy packing up a large chest full of things
to send to the book store for safe keeping - & what with fa
-tigue & cold, I do not feel well
