1862 February 1 Chapel Hill, N.C.

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

Sunday - 1st of February  Very cloudy & threatning to rain
I went to Church this morning - Communion day - But my throat
                                                                       in the afternoon
feeling sore I concluded to stay at home & read ^ - as we never
have a sermon in the afternoon - Mr Wingfield only
gives us the service - Mrs Campbell has been too unwell
to leave the house to day - No letter this morning from
Eliza - I am quite disappointed as she ought to have writ
-ten again by this time.
