Henry S., age 26, Michigan

I went over to Neill’s this morning and went with Fred to get some water at the creek.  We put the battens I brought at the saw mill in the wagon and brought them home.  I fixed the little pictures that go on the Hidden name cards, so they are ready to stick on as soon as the cards are written.  I go to Onekema to write Cards at the fair this week, shall start tomorrow.  I tremble for the consequences of this venture.  Kate, baby and I went up town this afternoon and did some trading and got the mail.  I got a letter from ma and Kate received a dress for Una from Mrs. Geo. Phelps.
