Henry S., age 26, Michigan

It has been raining almost all day and the wind has blown hard.  I fixed up my cross-cut saw this morning, so it is ready for business.  Will Case brought his books over and I have been working on them this afternoon.  Expect to finish my work on them tomorrow.  Went tot the singing class this evening.  I like the instructor real well and I believe I can improve my voice if I try hard, it needs it have enough.
