Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Irvie went off canvassing with Jimmie and the Buckboard this morning.  I did several odd jobs around home during the forenoon.  Practiced writing a little also.  This afternoon I wet up to the Institute and heard a Prof. talk about Penmanship.  I liked his writing on the board pretty well, but think he flourished too much for business.    Irvie and I went up town thinking there was a lecture tonight, but had to come back as there was none.  It has been pretty hot today.
