Henry S., age 26, Michigan

This has been an eventful day with us.  It was a stormy forenoon and we did not go to the fair ground until late and the rain had liven in our table and we boarded up the place where it rained in and started our writing.  We had a few customers during the day, and a good many lookers on.  We took in about $3.00 in all.  Mr. Hubbell, Mr. Adams, and Fred Waters came around and saw us.  We walked back to town with them, and called at their stopping place after supper and looked at the surveying drawings they are doing.  I got shaved tonight.  Wrote 1 Doz. cards.  Hope Kate and baby are well.
