[from the diary of Eliza Oswald Hill, refugee from Wilmington, N.C.]
Friday 30th Spent the morning in visiting tho' the snow
melting kept the ground very wet - We paid Mrs DeFossett a long
visit - Then went to Mrs Moore & sat a half hour, then to
Judge Person's - We also did a little shopping - In the afternoon
Mrs Walters came around & spent the evening - I received
a letter from Dr [Medway?] offering to rent a room or two in my
house - The Sun is shining brightly to day.
