Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Been hoeing for Fred again today.  He had Ralph Balch there cutting his rats.  It has been very hot and just after dinner, I felt the heat pretty badly.  I drank a large amount of spring water, but it did not make me feel bad.  Fred has one spring , which seems to have some iron about it, and it quenches thirst immensely.  It rained a little just before we came home tonight.  I feel as tired as I did last night.
