Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Fred and I got up about 8 o’clock this morning.  I shaved and got ready to go to church right after breakfast.  It has been another fine warm day.  I went into the store a minute just after church, but the telegraph was not working, so I came back right away.  I began a letter to Kate before dinner.  I went over to our farm this afternoon and walked around looked at the trees and other things.  I wish Kate was here now.  I am beginning to want my home pretty badly.  I called at the Morrows and saw their new girl, which they got from the school at Coldwater.  I stayed to go up town this afternoon, but met [Cha..?] Fitts and James Case, so came back and had a sing with them.  Have to go to the store in the morning.
