Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Finished writing a letter to Kate this morning and wrote a short one to ma and one to Effie.  Practiced writing the rest of the forenoon, went over to our house and got a few things.  Took a shave.  Taught writing this afternoon as usual, had 3 new students.  I will have to write a good supply of copies.  I called on Prof. Dolly after school to talk about the coming catalogues.  The weather was not cold this afternoon although the wind was northwest.  I have been writing copies tonight, and preparing to study some in Bookkeeping.  Well, all are in bed, but Fred and I and so I must propose to him that we retire.
