Henry S., age 25, Michigan


I came home this morning and began to pack up things.  I crated the sewing machine this forenoon, ready to ship on the freight.  Ma and Willie went over and called on Effie this afternoon, so as to have their last ride after Jimmie.  I went over to father Queal’s with the double buggy to carry some things and Kate came back with me bringing along the baby of course.  We began to pack up our fruit cans this afternoon; the baby has been real good this afternoon.  Kate and baby are going to stay here tonight.  I am feeling quite tired tonight someway.
