1863 February 7 Chapel Hill, N.C.

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

Saturday 7th  A bright cool day - Mrs Campbell & I walked down
to Mr Mickle's store to pack a trunk to send by Express - But
finding it would not hold my things I concluded to let the Chest
go - I received a long affectionate letter from dear Liz expressing her
disappointment at my not going to Enfield - I got my letter to Mr [Kahnweiler?]
off this morning to be sent by Express by Armand De Rossett Junior
Liz sent me the remainder of the money Christian Campbell & I went
to Mr Mickle's store to pack a trunk to send off by Express - But
finding it would not hold half the contents of the trunk we
left the chest to go - We found it very wet getting there & Christian
now has head ache from wet feet -
