Henry S., age 26, Michigan

I did not work much this forenoon, took a rest on the rushing business I have been doing so long.  It has not stormed any today, and has been thawing.  I received a lot of pens, Indian Ink, and tray for grinding some in from H.W. Kibbe, tonight.  Am pleased with them.  Wrote a holiday greeting to Scott tonight as it will take the letter about 6 weeks to reach him he may not get it until too late.
