Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I worked at digging around Grape vines the best share of the day.  I found more vines than I expected to.  I had a good many pickers in the strawberry patch this forenoon.  Nearly 2 bushels have been picked today.  Jimmie has acted so that I have not had him hitched up at all today.  I went up town tonight and took the washing to Mrs. Bradford.  Got the Leader and a letter from A.S. Barnes & Co.  It has been quite a warm today.
