Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Have been helping Kate care for the baby the most of today.  Dor went to Frankfort with Fred Neill this forenoon and got back tonight at supper time; they bought some of the things they bought at Frankfort.  I did some hoeing in the garden.  Went to Mrs. Balches to try and get some tomato plants, but there was no one at home.  It is getting most awful dry here again.  I was up town this morning and found that my cultivator had some, but I couldn’t get it today.  The baby has been having several sick spells during the day.  This was our wedding anniversary.
