Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I went over to Fred Neil’s this morning, and after helping him put some straw on his hay [mo…?], I got his team and wagon and went to the saw mill and got some maple flouring to put in our prospective kitchen in part of the woodhouse.  It took me the rest of the day to lay the flooring.  I had to go up town about noon and get some more nails.  Kate and Jessie went up town visiting this afternoon.  The baby cried all the way home with them.  It is growing cool again tonight.
