Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I got up this morning and found the weather some milder than it seemed yesterday.  I went over to our house after breakfast and took some things and then I went up to the store and worked all day.  I received a telegram today getting it all right.  I think I didn’t have any to send.  We didn’t have a very brisk trade at the store.  Fred Waters went away to join the survey party.  The stag3e started for Traverse City today but I heard they were having a hard time so I am afraid I will not hear from Kate for a long time.  I called at Dr. Taylor’s this evening and visited a little while.  Feel tired tonight.
