Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Dor took Jimmie and started for Robins, down in the edge of Manistee County.  I planted fodder corn among the peach trees.  I rested at 11 o’clock and picked strawberries for dinner, finished planting after dinner.  Kate took the baby and went over to see Jessie Neill awhile this afternoon.  I picked some strawberries and took down to Mr. Hubbell’s and traded them for 18 nice tomato plants.  I set out some of them but the gnats and mosquitoes drove me in to the house, and I was not free from them there.
