Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I arose this morning and built the fires, then I took Freds snow skiis and went over to our house on them.  (When I write our I mean Kate and mine.)  I t was a lovely day although, Fred and I went to church this forenoon.  We did not stay to Sunday school.  Charlie and Grace were here to dinner and spent the afternoon.  I wrote a letter to Kate this afternoon.  Went over to Fred Waters on Fred Neill’s snow skiis tonight.  It is but a little way across.  I did not stay long.  I read H.W. Beecher’s last sermon today.  I am glad that I am to get my papers regular now.  It is a fine evening.  Wind not since early morning.
