Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I got up his morning and built the fires.  Wrote my copies and the most of a letter to Kate before breakfast.  I went over to our house and painted all this forenoon.  My classes at the College were small today and I expect they will be smaller the next two days.  I sent Kate a Money Order for $25 today.  Went to the store and posted the books after school.  Mr. Case is not going away this week.  He asked me what I could work half the time in the store for if he should want me.  I got a letter from ma and another note from Nellie with a paper pattern of the baby’s hand.  I went up to Mr. Small’s and ate Maple “Wax” this evening.  They had a good company, but I didn’t stay long.
