Henry S., age 26, Michigan

It rained all last night and for some time this morning.  I wrote a letter to Will Stevens and did a little practicing this forenoon.  I put casing on a couple of windows up stairs.  This afternoon I put battens on the barn so as to keep the wind off from Jimmie.  It has been blowing a gale all day and is at it tonight.  I went to the organization of the singing class this evening and then went to a reception for the new Prof. and his wife at Mr. Waters’ for a little while.  Ordered some Billheads for Will Case.
