1863 January 20 Chapel Hill, N.C.

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

Tuesday 20th - Rainy & very cold - I have concluded to leave the Hotel
& board with Mrs Mallett - as Liz cant return - & Mrs Walters and
Sarah are going off - She sent to let me know she would take me
so I am packing up - Nothing unpleasant has occurred- I leave
Mr & Mrs Guthrie with kind feelings - They have treated me
remarkably well - & they say they are very sorry to part with
me - a large chest - Trunk & basket I have sent to the book
store for safe keeping -  & Mrs Phillips has the clock - It has
been pouring down rain all day --
