Henry S., age 26, Michigan

I cut posts for our cellar today, and got Fred Neill to draw a lot of lumber up from the saw mill for me.  Mr. Morris was here just before I went to work this afternoon and told me that the County Poor Superintendents wanted my help tomorrow to start their accounts in new books.  I don’t know how I will come out about them as they are different than Mercantile books.
