Henry S., age 26, Michigan

I slept very late this morning, and did not have our breakfast until 7:30.  I did considerable work about the woodshed this forenoon throwing the wood, which formed the walks inside and boarding the sides up with some lumber I had.  Fred Neill came over this afternoon and we cut some trees and cawed wood.  A fine flying squirrell[sic] came out of one of the trees and stayed in view for some time.  I have been having the toothache this evening.  It has begun to snow again.
