Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Went up town early this forenoon so as to practice the pieces we sang at the Convention this forenoon.  I got a little time to practice telegraphy this morning and this afternoon.  The teachers formed a branch of the Michigan Teachers Reading Circle.  I did not join because I will not have time for to tend to such a thing this season.  I took dinner at Mr. Waters, Fred and Carrie came back yesterday to stay.  It has been a warm day and the snow has been getting soft so that the roads are bed.  Fred and Jessie Neill went to Platt and I will stay a day or two.  I went up and practiced with the choir tonight, as Mr. Coates was away again.  Got back at 9 o’clock.  Sold some sugar at the store today.
