Henry S., age 26, Michigan

I felt better today and have been doing a little work.  Burned the log piles back of the barn and made it look cleaner there.  Cut what little corn I had, think I may get 2 bushels of ears.  I picked some apples this afternoon.  Went up town this afternoon, after supper and got the mail.  I got some different kinds of card ink of Packard.  Received a letter from ma and got some papers from home too.  The baby has seemed better today and we hope she will get well right along.
