Fred got up real early this morning and started for Traverse City with lumber for W. Case.  Mr. Case went with him.  I worked on the Inventory Book some, shaved, and then went up town and went to work again in the store.  We finished looked over the Groceries and are working on the Hardware.  I called at Mr. Waters today noon.  Taught my classes this afternoon.  I received a letter from Kate tonight, and one fro Alice Spoor.  Alice sent me 3 dollars to send and get her a Bookkeeping work and blanks.  I received a copy of the Michigan Farmer and expect one every week now.  I called Fred Waters and wife as I came home, they are settling in their home.  Fred paid me for one of the notes I hold against him.
