Journal: Jeanette Sperry

1895 (Saturday) – At home, I ironed nearly all day. In the afternoon, I walked up town. I went over to Aunt Emma Hague’s (Emma Elizabeth Webb) for Pet (Niletta Teltie Hague) to give me my music lesson, from there I went up to Burton’s. Mrs. Burton invited me to come and stay at her home during the coming winter, so I could attend school all winter (when on the farm, we usually walked up to school in the fall and then returned back again in the spring, it made us lose a lot of time, not going during the cold weather). It was very kind of them to invite me there. They thought a lot of Lon (Charles Alonzo Sperry) and asked him if he had a sister who would like to be with them during the winter. There were Mr. & Mrs. Enoch Burton, just one child, a son Louie, just a child but a mischievous one, and Mr. Burton’s mother in the family. I called for Ada Taylor and we went to Mutual. I had to sing a song. May Grover and I walked together as far as our paths went the same way, then I went to Aunt Sarah Abbott’s (Sarah Elizabeth Sperry) and slept there.
