Henry S., age 25, Michigan


Have been hard at work teaching today. I told Dr. Taylor this morning that I couldn’t stand this work and that they would have to hire another teacher after this week. I feel worse about this affair every time I think of it. It will be so humilliating [sic], but it would make me sick to study as hard as I will have to and teach too. I had all the room could accommodate in the penmanship class today. After school I went over to Mrs. Neill’s and made a short call. Fred had gone to Kingsley with a load of goods. The sun shone some today and it is clear tonight. It snows here very easy and every day so far. Practiced writing some tonight.
