Henry S., age 25, Michigan


I arose at 5:30 this morning and did the shores and picked strawberries enough for breakfast.  We didn’t, any of us, get to church today.  We all went over to Neill’s this afternoon, and Fred, Dor, and I took a ride out into the town of Homestead.  We hitched little Jimmie up beside of Fred’s big Frank horse, and our team looked comical enough.  It has been a nice pleasant day.  For has been packing up this evening as we have to start very early in the morning so he can take the boat at Frankfort.
