Henry S., age 25, Michigan

It rained rather easy thought, the most of the forenoon.  I was rather slow about getting my breakfast and clearing things away, took a shave, and after caring for Jimmie, I went up town to see about getting a cultivator.  I thought I could get a spring tooth, but I changed my mind tonight and had Mr. Hopkins order an Acme for me.  I did a little more plowing this afternoon.  Fred Waters was here for a little while this afternoon.  I went up town with him; he goes to Manistee tomorrow.  I got a letter from Kate tonight, which makes me feel good.  Spent part of the evening at Neill’s.  I feel pretty tired.
