Henry S., age 25, Michigan

When we got up this morning we found the weather mild and the thermometer going up fast.  It has thawed a good deal today and the snow has gone down considerable.  Fred went to the lumber camp this morning, and left the care of his colts to me, but I cam afraid his father is going to bother me about the feed ete.  I went up town right away after dinner as I heard the mail came last night.  I got a good, long letter from my darling Kate, and I feel better for it.  I helped the Dr. get a table over to my classroom so the scholars are better accommodated now.  I got a Bill of the books ordered of W. & R. Have been writing to Kate tonight, and must write to Will Cooper.
