Henry S., age 25, Michigan

The snow failed to make sleighing. Kate and I tried it but it didn’t go very well. I nearly finished a pair of hickory needles today. Pa went to Dexter and paid his taxes. Effie and I went to the Nilsson Club at Cranson’s tonight. Not cold.  *(R. Henry Scadin Collection, D.H. Ramsey Library Special Collections, UNC Asheville)
