1896 – Dwight Sparke’s and I went down to Kienke’s on horseback for some butter. I rode back to Sunday School, afterwards I went down to Kienke’s and had dinner, Dwight took the horse’s home, along with the butter. In the afternoon, George Soby came down there and later Richard Bale and Eliza Russell, I remained for supper then I walked back home. Soon after I reached home, Tom Painter came down, Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) and I tried to ride his bicycle. He went home before eleven o’clock and Esther and I sat talking until twelve o’clock.
