Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I did a little specimen writing this morning. Willie cut his fingers terribly this forenoon, Ma and I took him up to Dr. Chase and had them dressed, it was hard job for him. I gathered some nuts and helped pa pick cider apples this afternoon. Henry and Nellie came after Kate tonight.
