1863 January 26 Chapel Hill, N.C.

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

Monday 26th  -After all the bad weather we again have the cheerful
Sun - & the air is balmy & pleasant - The morning is just like
a Spring morning - I have written three long letters with my
windows opened - Spent the afternoon in visiting - Went
to Judge Battles - Professor Smiths & Colonel Martins - then
to the Hotel to see what they were doing there - Found only
Sarah at home -- Mrs Guthrie was overjoyed to see me - After
tea knit until 10 O Clock - Wrote to Liz to day--

MSS 6960
