Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Got up this morning and ate breakfast with Fred.  I wrote a lot of copies and then finished reading Hiawathia[sic] which I think is a beautiful poem and I will want to read it again sometimes.  I finished my letter to Kate also.  Grace came over this morning and stayed through the day.  I didn’t have any trouble in my classes today.  The Prof. and Mr. James Case visited my class in Penmanship.  I went to the Post Office after school and received a letter from Kate and the Leader. Also a packet of seed from D.M. Ferry & Co. they failed to send the Cardinal tomato I ordered.  I shall write to them.  I called at Mr. Waters and got my saw.  It has been a mild day.  Looks stormy tonight.
