Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I got up this morning soon after 4 o’clock and began to clean out the bedroom and closet, so Kate would not have to do so much it would made her sick the first thing.  I hitched Jimmie into Fred Neill’s buggy and went up town about 10 o’clock, but got no telegram from Kate, so it must be that she did not start yesterday.  I came back, got my dinner, and finished tacking down the bedroom carpet then I went at the upstairs part and cleaned that making things look much better.  I began on the woodshed tonight and will have that looking different tomorrow.  I will go up to the office tomorrow forenoon to see if Kate is on her way.  I hope she will come as I want them with me.
