Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I made out an for vegetables on D. M. Ferry & Co. of Detroit.  It took me about all the forenoon to make the selection, but I think I have a fair one for my home garden, which I hope to enjoy next summer.  My, but haven’t I lots of plan for next summer I guess some of them will have to suffer but I am going to do all I can to have my home a pleasant one for myself and darling wife.  Mr. John Adams entered the Bookkeeping class this afternoon, and I had a new student in the penmanship class.  I have been writing to Kate tonight and also the Office “a paper which I am going to try for months.  It is a beautiful moonlight night.
