Henry S., age 26, Michigan

Worked up some wood this morning and drew it up to the house.  Made some steps to the cellar and threw a lot of dirt on its roof.  Taught my classes at the College this afternoon.  It rained some this evening when I was coming come.  I am becoming dissatisfied with my place here and want to go out somewhere else in the world.  I whish I could sell the farm and go to come Penman’s school.
