Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I finished unpacking the pint cans this morning.  Planted a little corn among the Plum trees and sowed some carrot seed there also.  It rained some this forenoon.  I was in hopes we are going to have another good shower, but is passed off.  I sowed a box to late cabbage seed today.  Went up town tonight before I had supper, and got the mail.  I have been catching mice in the woodshed this afternoon, caught 5 so far and may have another before I go to bed.  Took a pail of nuts over to the Neill’s tonight.  The sweet potato plants I ordered of Child’s came to Mrs. Neill today.  I did not hear from home today.
