Henry S., age unknown, Michigan

Mowed some grass and weeds in the hay field with a scythe this forenoon. Raked and cocked hay this afternoon. It looked very much like rain tonight and we worked late. Been a hot day. Thunderstorm went north tonight. I am living on hot lemonade & strawberries now-a-days for my health.  *(R. Henry Scadin Collection, D.H. Ramsey Library Special Collections, UNC Asheville)
