Henry S., age 26, Michigan

Today was Thanksgiving.  We invited Fred and Jessie Neill over to dinner.  We had a pretty good dinner, too, and at a small cost, about $.40 all told, as we reckoned it.  It began snowing before noon and has stormed continually since.  I got Mr. Morrows’ sleigh and drew a couple of cords of wood down, this afternoon, and then it stormed so badly I quit.  I don’t expect that we will see much bare ground from now until next spring.
