Henry S., age 26, Michigan

I went over and saw Mr. Olson this morning and engaged him to saw some wood for me as soon as he can find time.  Went to the saw mill to see about getting lumber to fix up for winter with; came home and commenced to saw up some wood myself.  This afternoon Jessie Neill came over and we all went up in the woods after Beech nuts.  I took the baby’s high chair and she saw in that while we gather a few minutes.  I drew up some wood towards evening.  It has been a pleasant day.  A hard frost last night.
