Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Did not get up very early this morning.  Went to the sugar camp with Fred after breakfast, to see his new evaporator, the snow is two feet deep on a level in the woods.  We got ready and went to church when we got back.  Mr. Waters preached a missionary sermon, in the interests of the home missions I signed 2 cents per week for this year.  It has been quite warm all day, we did not wear any overcoats I wrote a letter to ma and one to Kate telling them I don’t believe I can get down there this spring if I go into the store, and it looks as though I should do so.  Have been reading in my Detroit Tribune today, I think I will like the paper.
