Henry S., age 25, Michigan

It has been a fine day, thawing quite a good deal.  It was Kate’s birthday and I wish I could have seen her and the baby.  I went up to the store this morning and posed up the books and took a trial balance of the Ledger.  I did a considerable other writing also.  After school I made out the telegraph reports for the month of March.  I sent a telegram today noon to Frankfort and made no mistakes.  I received a letter from ma tonight saying all were doing well and that our little girl was very sweet.  I shall get awfully puffed up.  I was quite late in getting through my work tonight and I feel real tired.  Will go to bed early.
