Henry S., age 26, Michigan

The storm last night did not prevail long as only 2 or 3 inches of snow fell and that was crusted over as though rain has fallen last and then frozen. I had my class no. 1 in Penmanship at 10 o’clock A.M. today and it was filled. Both classes are now full. I went to the town library after school and drew a book, “Ancient America,” which I began reading aloud tonight so Kate could have the benefit also. It has been a mild day.
