Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Kate did her washing this forenoon and I amused the baby and practiced writing.  Built a jack to cut up corn on and I cut some fodder corn this afternoon.  The baby has been sick all the afternoon; it is caused by teething and a bad cough.  I went up town tonight to mail a letter to ma and do a little trading.  It has been warmer today with the wind in the south.  It was cool tonight though.
