Henry S., age 26, Michigan

It snowed quite fast this morning.  I tried drawing wood but the stoneboat was unimaginable on the snow and I had to give it up.  I must get a sleigh for the work if I can.  I fixed an upper door in the stable so it will be warmer for Jimmie.  Sawed up some chunks this afternoon to use in our big stove.  Went up town tonight to get the mail.  I was disappointed in not getting things ordered long ago.  It is a still nice night.  Sleighs were running today.
