Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Went up town this morning and had the dentist pull a tooth, which has bothered me some.  It came out very hard.  Rode home with Mr. Morrow.  Finished drawing the wood out of the slashing this afternoon.  Went up and got my nail tonight, received a letter from ma, and some medicine for Kate and baby from Dr. Chase.  A strong wind has been slowing from the north this afternoon and it is growing cold.
