Henry S., age 25, Michigan

It was a very cool morning and I finished plowing in the peach orchard.  Went up to the telegraph office at noon and sure enough I got a message from Kate saying that she would be at Frankfort tonight.  I ate my dinner and then hitched Jimmie to Fred Neill’s double buggy and came down to Frankfort.  Kate and Dor came on the [De…?] about 6 o’clock. I was awful glad to see then.  We are staying at the Park House.  It was a nice day for them to come.  I thought it would be to[sic] late to go to Benzonia tonight.
