Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I wrote an order for blank cards and one for printed envelopes and went up town and mailed them this morning.  Came home and practiced writing a little before dinner.  This afternoon did some more grubbing in the clearing, and some hoeing of weeds.  I went over to Neill’s tonight and got some vinegar and some apples.  No rain as yet and everything is very dry.  I hope no one will be starting fires.
