Journal: Jeanette Sperry

1896 – Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) and I washed all day. We certainly have big washings as we are a big family. And we used to run the clothes through the only Western Washer, twice. 15 minutes the first time and 10 minutes the second time and I was the one that has to run the washer. Besides that we boiled the clothes, rubbed all of them on the board and rinsed them in two waters. My how lovely our clothes looked when hanging on the line. It rained all afternoon. Evening – I wrote for the Primary Journal.
