1895 – I walked down home and we washed all day. Towards evening Esther (Emily Esther Sperry), Melvin (Henry Melvin Sperry) and I went up to town. Esther and I went to the store and bought me a Pink Waist. We went to a meeting in the Academy Hall and after the meeting we went to a Democratic Meeting. Eli Batchelor took Esther and Dora Norton home. Lil (Lillie Black) and I went alone up to Grandmothers. After Eli and Dora had gone, we went out doors and met Earl Mangum, Ada Taylor, Jennie and Della Kendall, and Tom Painter. We danced around on the lawn for a while and then sat on the lawn, talking until eleven o’clock, and then the company left.
