Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I hoed out the corn in the plum orchard today.  This afternoon Kate too Jimmie and the Buckboard and she, Jessie and Jessie’s niece went up to Eden and called on Grace.  It was the first time Kate had driven Jimmie since she came up here.  I hoed some more and planted some corn for fodder, this afternoon.  Picked strawberries for supper and enough for breakfast also.  Ms. Waters was here a while picking strawberries for tomorrow’s use.  I put up some picture knobs in the bedroom tonight, so we could hang some things up out of the way.  It turned warmer today.
