Pages from composition book written by a boy [Emil Hetze] attending the Wartburg Theological Seminary in Waverly, Iowa. The text within mentions that Emil and his family are from Cedarburg, Wisconsin. In his essay, “Mein Leben,” Emil writes about his less-than-enjoyable experience of working in a cranberry bog, presumably in Wisconsin.
