Henry S., age 26, Michigan

It has not been a pleasant day, being windy and chilly.  I have been digging for a cellar all day, and am rather tired in consequence of so going.  My front teeth have been very tender today and pained badly at times.  I don’t like to have toothache and such things just now if I am to teach.  I am going up in the morning to see what is to be done about it.
