Henry S., age 26, Michigan

It was a pleasant morning and Kate, Una and I drove up town to get the jar of butter that ma sent us, and so several other errands.  We called at Dr. Taylor’s.  I received a letter from Prof. Farley of Trenton, N.J. in which he praised my writing; I was much pleased to get encouraging words from so high a source.  Worked on the cellar the remainder of the forenoon.  Taught at the college this afternoon.  Have been writing this evening.  We sent 2 of Una’s pictures home today.
