Henry S., age 26, Michigan

Worked at the kitchen part this forenoon.  Drew what fodder corn I raised this year and stacked it near the farm; it makes a very small showing for Jimmie’s fed and I will have to buy considerable stuff for him.  Drew some manure onto the garden in a poor place that needs enriching.  Went to the sing tonight; it was held in the hall to kind of prepare for the concert tonight.  I called at Dr. Taylor’s and he said they were fixing my room at the college, so I think I may commence to teach next week.
