Henry S., age 25, Michigan


I went up town this morning and got our washing at Mr. Bradford’s.  Heard that my Buckboard would be here next Monday for sure.  I took some strawberries over to Mr. Nevins’ for which I received $.50.  Dor and I went over into Eden this afternoon and looked that country pretty much all over.  We were treated to strawberries at Mr. Coates’.  We went where we could see Lake Michigan and rue of the Manistee islands.  I picked and took a pail of strawberries over to Bilderbach’s tonight and then went up town and got some lemons and a collar and tie.  We had a good lemonade when I got back.  It rains some.
