Henry S., age 25, Michigan


I said good-bye to my folks this morning, and I expect it will be a long time, if sickness or some such thing does not call me back, before I will see old Webster again.  I think I get homesick each time I have to leave the old homestead and the folks that still remain.  We headed up the things, and Willie hitched Jimmie to the jogger and we started for Plymouth, getting here about noon.  We fed the horses at a feed stable, ate our dinner, loafed a little, and then Pa and Willie started back for home, and left Jimmie and me to go on the freight train to Manistee.  I let Jimmie fill up on grass by the yard and will put him in the car about 6:30 tonight.
