Henry S., age 25, Michigan

It rained some this morning.  I went over to Neill’s to get Mrs. Neill to bake me a load of bread.  I cultivated out some of the strawberries this forenoon.  I think I will plow up some of it; the grass is so bad.  Planted considerable sweet corn this afternoon and sowed more cabbage seed.  I went up town about 5 o’clock this afternoon, got a postal from Kate stating that she would stat today if she could, but it has been so stormy I fear she did not.  She will telegraph t me from Manistee so I will know tomorrow forenoon if she came.  I took supper at Neill’s tonight.  Fred is going to Frankfort in the morning.
