Henry S., ag 25, Michigan


It was cold this morning, the thermometer indicated 2o below zero soon after 5 o’clock.  I went to the store and studied telegraphy post up the books and waited for a few customers.  It was a very fine forenoon.  Some politicians from Cadilac were at the store the most of the forenoon, spouting around.  Mr. Nutting came up and took a picture of the College this afternoon, but he told me tonight that I was cut into in the edge of the picture, so I am no ornament to it.  I went up to practice singing for the Mass meeting tomorrow, but they had only the words and I couldn’t sing.  It warmed up today and is very cloudy and storming a little tonight.
