Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Had a tearing time with Morrow’s hens this forenoon. I am thinking it will in time spoil our neighborly feelings, as I can’t stand it to have them destroy my garden.  Kate went to church and I took care of the baby.  It rained very hard while they were in church, but cleared for them to come home.  It has rained hard by spells all the day.  I got along with the baby firstrate. Fred Neill came over a while this afternoon, we picked some strawberries and I gave him 4 quarts.  Kate is sick with headache tonight.  I feel very sleepy.  Wrote a letter to ma today.
