Henry S., age 25, Michigan

It has been snowing and blowing the most of today.  Studied single entry Bookkeeping this forenoon.   I don’t think much of that method compared with Double Entry, but I have to understand both systems, when teaching.  Went up to the College right away after dinner to teach.  I have eight in my Bookkeeping class and 3 new scholars came in to the writing class today.  I went to the store after school and bought me a pair of stocking boots to wear in these deep snows.  Have been writing copies tonight and also a letter to Kate.  It is now 9:30 so I think I better begin to think of going to bed.
