1896 – I stayed home all day, we made ice cream. Evening – I went up town with Art (David Arthur Sperry) to a dance. After the ball, Art took Ada Taylor, Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) and I over to Spark’s Ice Cream Parlor and treated up to ice cream and lemonade. Afterwards, we walked down to the depot we were expecting a train to come in about that time, but it was late and didn’t arrive until after we reached home. I slept with Ada Taylor.
