Henry S., age 26, Michigan

Today has been cold and windy, and our booth at the fair was very disagreeable.  I felt unwell last night and this forenoon I had a chill and have been sick all day.  We quit early and too our things off the grounds, each of us carrying off blue ribbons for an exhibit of our pen work in the fine art department.  We came as far as Bear Lake tonight on our way home; it was a cold ride.  I have been feeling very sick this evening.
