Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Kate canned our crop of peaches this morning; she had 2 quarts.  We got things ready and started for Pleasanton about 9:30 o’clock.  I tied the baby’s carriage on behind the buggy seat to use when we got to Robins’.  We took a lunch along and stopped in the woods and ate it on our way down.  When we got there, we found the whooping cough in the family so we did not go in the house.  Kate and Dell went over to Taylor’s while I fed Jimmie and then we came home.  It was a long ride for the baby but she seemed to enjoy it.
