Henry S., age 25, Michigan

Finished my letter to Kate this forenoon.  I went over to the house and measured the stairs and sent her the dimensions so Nellie can get her a carpet.  It thawed the most of today and almost rained about noon, but turned colder about sundown and froze up.  It is not real cold though.  I mailed a letter to Effie containing Bookkeeping references for the class there.  Taught as usual this afternoon.  I went up town tonight and attended the exercises of the literary club.  It was a debate mostly.  I changed my rubbers tonight as the ones I had hurt my feet so.  My classes went off better today and I feel better about them tonight.  Got my pens today from Boston.
