Henry S., age 25, Michigan

It was cold again this morning, the thermometer being down to 0.  I got up and fed Fred’s colts before daylight and then went to studying Bookkeeping.  It was a clear and sunshiny day, which is the first one I have seen since I came up.  It warmed up a good deal and appears like storming tonight.  The Bookkeeping works came on the stage tonight, so I can begin teaching that by next week Tuesday.  I shall deliver the books tomorrow.  I called at Mr. Waters after school tonight and learned that Fred was to be home tonight, so I shall see him tomorrow.  I was up town tonight, and opened the books and found them all night.
