Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Kate was sick the most of last night, with a bad ear.  I was afraid she was going to be seriously ill, but warm applications seemed to maker her better after a while.  I went up town with Jimmie and the stone-boat this morning and got my Acme cultivator also some flour, and sugar.  I did some cultivating and think the machine is just what I want.  Fred Waters and his wife came over and got Kate and the baby this afternoon.  I went up town with the washing, got the mail, and went over to Waters and took supper.  Dor and Fred went fishing and had good luck.  Expected the buggy tonight, but is had not come.
