1896 (Monday) – About six o’clock in the evening, Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) and I went up town with Father (Charles Henry Sperry). I went to Aunt Sarah Abbott’s (Sarah Elizabeth Sperry) for a few minutes then Esther and I took a walk. We went down town then over to Goldsbrough’s where we stopped and talked with Birdi Goldsbrough. We went up to Brother John T. Millers to see if there was to be a lecture that evening, found out there was, so we went down past the meeting house. Took a walk out south, returned, but there was so small a crowd present, we didn’t go to the lecture. We were passing the drug store when Oscar Lunt (Alfred Oscar Lunt) came out and talked to us. We had supper at Aunt Sarah’s and I came down home with Art (Arthur David Sperry).
