Henry S., age 25, Michigan

I went over to my house this morning, or rather about noon and found it about the worst drifted I had anytime.  I finished a letter to Kate, and wrote an order to Carter & Carrick of Boston for some pens.  Did writing as usual and taught this afternoon.  The mail failed to come in tonight so I have no letters from home yet and the bookkeeping works are not here.  The roads are so drifted there is no telling when the stage will come.  I didn’t do my writing tonight, but told stories, ate candy and visited with Fred, as he is going to the lumber camp in the morning.
