Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Practiced penmanship quite a good deal today.  Helped Mr. Holbrook fix some line fence this morning.  Went to the sawmill afternoon dinner and ordered some flooring and battons for the wood house.  Kate and I fixed up a frame for the show cards, which I have written.  We made a bottle of mucilage with water and Green Arabie.  Have had the blues today, together with a sour stomach.
