Henry S., age 25, Michigan

It has been a moderate day.  I wrote my copies before breakfast.  Went up to the Court House this morning and left the letter I wrote to Kate to be sent off with the Clerks mail.  When I got back I practiced a song some and then went to mending up my clothes.  Mrs. Holbrook was here this forenoon visiting Mrs. Neill.  It seems good to have Fred home again.  I don’t have any care of his colts now since he got back.  Taught this afternoon as usual.  Went over to Mrs. Waters and practiced on a song with her.  Took Dr. Taylor’s Shakespear[sic] home.  Charlie and Grace were here a little while tonight.  It is trying to snow tonight.  I started writing a letter to Kate.
