Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Last night was a cold one; and the thermometer was down to zero this morning.  It is 10o above tonight.  I fixed up my class register this forenoon and did some copy writing.  Went over to my house this morning.  I had to wade through some deep drifts.  I took about ½ bushel of snow out of the up stair part that had blown in at the crevices.  Went up this afternoon and taught writing.  Had 26 scholars.  Called on Dr. Taylor to tell we must have more table room and chairs.
