Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I went up to the store this morning and tried to telegraph to the Frankfort operator that I could not get there but I couldn’t tell whether he got it or not.  I [sic] has blown and stormed all day.  I guess March is going out like a lion, as it came in like a lamb.  I had a talk with Mr. Case about the business I have been talking about.  He don’t know yet for certain that he will go.  I called on Fred Waters as I came home after dinner.  I wrote a letter to pa this afternoon.  Went up and got the mail tonight – received a letter from Kate mailed the 24th, and one from ma mailed the 25th telling me about my little daughter.  Ma says she is pretty.  It is cold tonight.
