Henry S., age 26, Michigan

I put in a window in the south end of the kitchen part of our wood shed and put the battens on the outside also.  Jesse Packard came over and got my “Ames Compendium,” to do some pen lettering from.  It has threatened to rain all day but has but has not succeeded much.  The Benzie Co. far opens tomorrow and I expect I will have to be there about all the time but I don’t like the idea very much.
