Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I did not get up very early this morning, for my sleep was not the best some way last night.  I finished cleaning out the woodshed this forenoon, and then I rode Jimmie up town to see if there was any word from Kate, but there was not.  I moved our lounge chairs and library over from Neill’s this afternoon; we took them there 2 years ago next fall.  I went up and got the mail tonight, but heard no word from home.  I ordered a Buckboard of Mr. Spence.  I want a light rig for Jimmie.  Spent a good share of the evening at Neill’s.  I shall look for work from Kate again tomorrow.
