Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I practiced writing considerable today.  Picked some apples just before and after dinner.  I hitched up and went up town this afternoon and Kate went over to Neill’s and stayed while I was gone.  I got no mail but my paper tonight.  The baby is having a panic this evening for some cause.  There was quite a hard frost this morning, but the tomato vines that we covered last night seemed as much damaged as the others.
