Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Got up this morning and went over to or house and got my hammer for Fred to use today.  It was quite squally, snowing from the Northwest.  After breakfast I went up the store and posted up the books for yesterdays business, then did some other writing and studied telegraphy.  Taught at the College this afternoon as usual.  Student [sic] are dropping off, and one was expelled today for insolent behavior to the principal.  I went over to the office and studied some more after school.  Called at the Dr’s and learned that Mrs. Robbins is better.  I have a bad pain in my right arm tonight, am afraid it ma be Rhumatin.  Clear cool weather tonight.
