Henry S., age 25, Michigan

It snowed all last night and the most of today.  I did not go anywhere today.  Played on the organ and tried to sing some.  Did a considerable reading, and wrote a letter to Kate.  I took care of Fred’s colts.  I have to go down in a root cellar under the barn to get them their carrots.  I feel tonight as though I had eaten too much for the little exercise, which I have taken.  I am going to take a scrub tonight so I must stop writing and be about it and them go to bed.
