Henry S., age 25, Michigan

This was a nice, hot quite warm day.  I came over and got the pony this morning, and Kate, baby, and I went and made Geo. and Effie a visit, taking along a lot of things which ma sent to Effie.  We stayed there and took dinner with them having a good time, as baby was real good all the time.  Effie is going to be pretty well fixed, I think, and if she only gets over a hard cough which she now has we will be satisfied with her prospects in life.  I came home this afternoon and put up a box of Hickory and Walnuts to ship up north.  I am going to stay here all night.  It turned cool this evening, but is fearful dry.  I intend to go to Ann Arbor tomorrow.
