I done but little today. Made Pinck a housewife, a small one & fixed some needles, thread & buttons in it for him. He is delighted with it. They will start sometime this week. No news from Mr. Henry. All quiet along the lines. My little ones all well & I am thankful of it. Five soldiers stay here tonight. They are from Texas. Aunt Patsey warped the cloth for the boy’s pants.

Harrie went to Asheville this morning & brought me a letter from Mr. Henry. He is at Paint Rock & well. Betsy & Aunt Patsey put in the cloth & began it. Aunt Patsey went home this evening. Jinnie scoured my room & the dining room today. I have been fixing up Pinck’s things & done nothing of importance.
