Henry S., age 25, Michigan

This has been a beautiful day.  The wind keeps in the north but it was not cold.  I ate my breakfast before the rest and went up to my work at the store.  I worked at the personal ledger all the time and just succeeded in getting g it closed, I did nothing toward closing the large ledger, so I will have to go up again next Monday and finish the work.  I was on my feet all day at the desk and got pretty tired, but yet, I think I would like Bookkeeping.  I had small classes at the College this afternoon.  Grace is here tonight.  We have had popcorn to eat.  I have been reading this evening, in the “Office” a Bookkeeping journal.
