Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Finished putting out the tomato plants this morning.  Wrote a letter to ma after breakfast and then I went up town and mailed it and got my mail also.  My buckboard had not come yet.  It was awful hot the most of the day.  I was hoeing in the garden the best share of the day.  Winnie Waters and Carrie were here picking strawberries this forenoon and stayed to dinner.  Dor came back this afternoon.  We took Fred Neill’s rifle and shot at a mark several times.  Jessie Neill picked some strawberries this afternoon.  It rained a very little and threatened a good deal.
