Henry S., age 26, Michigan

We got up early this morning, and Kate went at her washing and I put down some thresholds to the inside doors and fixed some in the kitchen.  Went up town and got our new stove and pipe to put it up.  This afternoon we moved the cook stove out into the kitchen, put down our carpet and set up the new stove.  Every-thing goes well so far.  I went for the mail tonight and to get more stove pipe so we could build a fire in the new stove.  We feel pretty tired.
