Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Worked at the store today.  Irvie started for home this morning on the Traverse City stage.  I made much work telegraphing today that I felt about sick.  Frankfort operator helped me out though.  It has been cool all day, but is growing warmer tonight and looks stormy.  I received the 1800 cards I had ordered some time ago; they are fine and my Ink is very good.  I have a good card writing outfit now.  Kate and Jessie were up to the store this forenoon.  The baby weighed 15 ½ #.  Jessie was here at supper this evening.
