Henry S., age 26, Michigan

I fixed up my specimens of writing and took them over to the fair this morning.  I brought the house and buggy home and then went back to see to my department, Apples, at the fair.  I had my dinner on the grounds.  Was pretty busy this afternoon in arranging fruit.  There don’t seem to be much of any thing else coming in yet.  Received a letter form Effie tonight, and Kate got one from home.  It has been a very pleasant day.
