Henry S., age 26, Michigan

Finished picking the apples this forenoon.  I put the Russets in a pit and covered them with leaves and boards ready to put on the dirt when it comes freezing weather.  Kate, baby and I went up tow this afternoon and over to the fair ground to get my look and cast of cards.  Went up to Mr. Green’s this evening to practice a song with Prof. Greenlee and Mrs. Green, and from there to the singing class.  It is raining tonight.
