Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I arose with a headache this morning and have felt miserable all day.  Neither of us went to church.  I went up stairs and slept for a long time this forenoon.  We have had strawberries 3 times today, but they are getting pretty thin and will soon be all gone.  I found some ripe black raspberries in the woods today; they were good size, too, for wild fruit.  Went over to Neill’s a little while this afternoon to borrow a Doctor book for Kate.  We rode down to water Jimmie tonight.  It has been two weeks since I have heard from home and I want a letter.
