Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I arose at a little after 5 o’clock this morning, got my breakfast, took care of Jimmie, swept out, took a good wash, shaved, and dressed up to church with Fred Neill.  We stayed to Sunday school too.  It was real warm during the middle of the day.  I took dinner at Neill’s, then went out to Fred’s farm with him.  It began to rain just as we got back to my house and Fred came in and stayed until evening and I went home with him to lunch.  It is giving us a real good rain now.  I came back to sleep at home and care for things, caught another mouse today.  I hope Kate and baby will be here in a week.
