Henry S., age 26, Michigan

It began to mist this morning and finally wound up with a rain, which lasted about all day; it is clear this evening, and I can hear Lake Michigan roar very plainly, which seems strange when it is so still.  I did very little but sit in the house today.  Went up town and got the mail, received a letter from Scott, he is looking forward to the time when he will come home from Chili.
