Henry S., age 25, Michigan

When I started to get up this morning I had a pain take me in my head, but it went off upon lying down for a few minutes.  I took some exercise on Freds snow shoes for my health, before breakfast.  Wrote copies and then went to the store to study telegraphy.  I helped Mr. Case a little also, filling an oilcan and doing some other things.  I got no mail at all tonight.  Am going to the opening exercises of the Teachers Convention tonight, it was real good.  I was told by Mr. Case that he might have to leave by the first of April.  That means business.
