Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Have been riding in the freight car until 6:00 his evening.  It has been a warm day, but I had both doors of the car open and did not mind the heat much.  Jimmie would not eat corn on the road, he seem to be kind of homesick.  I expect I would be too if I allowed my thoughts to dwell on the old home.  I put Jimmie in a feed barn and went up to the Post Office and wrote and mailed a card to Kate.  I am staying at the American House.  Mr. Albert Adams of Benzonia is here this evening.  I feel pretty tired.
