Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Managed to sleep last night.  One of my eyes somewhat inflamed today.  I went over to Fred’s and got a chunk of ice this forenoon, then he and I went to the lake and took a good wash off.  I felt too sleepy to go to church.  I picked red and black raspberries enough for our supper and for Kate’s dinner tomorrow.  I am going to the store in the morning to work.  Wrote a letter to pa this afternoon.
