Henry S., age unknown, Michigan

Pa and I cultivated corn all the forenoon. It was so hot we didn’t  go to the field until 4 o’clock this afternoon but we finished by supper time. I felt the heat very much. The thermometer indicated 97 in the shade this afternoon. Kate went over to her father’s tonight.  *(R. Henry Scadin Collection, D.H. Ramsey Library Special Collections, UNC Asheville)
