Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I spent most of the forenoon in hoeing in the garden and planning peas and beans.  Mr. Cooley and son and Miss Gertie Bailey were here picking strawberries.  This afternoon I cultivated the front yard and among the young pear trees it was hard work […ing?] to sods.  I hitched to the new Buckboard after supper and went up town for the mail and buy some few things.  I received a letter from ma, and was glad to hear form home.  It has been cool again today.
