Henry S., age 25, Michigan


I got up at 2 o’clock this morning, fed Jimmie, go breakfast for Dor and myself, and at 3 we were on the road to Frankfort.  We got there at 6, an hour before boat time.  I stayed to see Dor off and then started for home.  I took a lunch and fed Jimmie some oats near a spring just this side of Frankfort.  Got back at 10:31 and left Fred Neill’s buggy at home.  Quite a number of persons have been here picking strawberries today.  I went up town for the mail tonight.  Got a letter for Kate from home.  I received some specimens of writing from a penman in Chicago, think with a little training I might do nearby as well.
