Henry S., age 24, Michigan

Pa and I put a tiled drain through the road near the corners today. It was very hard digging. I found the most moisture directly in the road bed. We washed the double buggy this afternoon. Uncle Robert went to Ann Arbor. Kate, Effie and Ida drove over to McCalls after we had supper. I picked some more cherries.
