Henry S., age 25, Michigan

It has been quite a clear nice day.  The wind blew pretty hard this afternoon and tonight.  I wrote up a synopsis of the work that students will do in the Bookkeeping for publication in the College catalogue, which took about all my forenoon.  I held and examination in my class in Bookkeeping this afternoon.  Student [sic] who are not shallow minded show their superiority on such occasions.  After school I called on Mr. Waters folks.  When I came home I brought a bag of a [grah..n?] flour.  I discover while coming down the hill that the chimney in the Bailey house was on fire, but it soon went down.  We look for Fred and here he comes.
