Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Began a letter to pa this morning.  I shaved, went over to my house after a pair of cuffs and then Fred and I went to church.  Mr. Waters preached a temperance sermon, with strong political news.  We didn’t stay to Sunday school.  It has been a moderate day, and began to snow hard towards evening.  Fred has gone up to a temperance lecture tonight.  I stayed home to write to Kate.  I finished the letter to pa also.  Did some singing and some playing on the organ this afternoon.  Have had popcorn to eat all day.  No school tomorrow so I will not have to teach.
