Henry S., age 26, Michigan

We finished putting down the carpet this forenoon.  I fixed up the cupboard so as to correspond with the looks of things as they now are in the room.  It has been a pleasant day.  Taught at the College this afternoon.  Went to the store after school and got some things.  I began to study bookkeeping again tonight, so as to brighten up on the subject.  Our house look very pleasant now on the inside, and that is where we live.
