Henry S., age 26, Michigan

Things were pretty well frozen up this morning and I am afraid our apples will many of them spoil soon in consequence of it.  I went up to the college this morning but found that my room was not ready and I could not teach today.  I came home and went at the cellar and have worked hard at it all day.  I have it nearly ready for the roof.  It has continued to freeze all day and I may be getting the cellar too late.
