Henry S., age 25, Michigan


Helped Kate until about 9 o’clock this forenoon and then I went home, shaved, washed my head etc.  I helped a little about cleaning the room Kate and I used to occupy.  After dinner I got ready and went to Dexter, driving the pony.  It was a cold ride, the wind blew hard from the south West too.  I called at the Leader office and subscribed for the paper.  Saw a good many people I ain[sic] acquainted with.  I went to the Doctor’s office and got some things for Kate.  I took supper at home tonight and then came over to send the night with Kate.  The Dr. was here this morning to see Nellie who has a sore throat.  I had him see Kate and the baby too.
