1896 – In the evening about 7 o’clock, I went up town with Melvin (Henry Melvin Sperry). He drove over to the drug store and while he went in, I stayed out in the buggy and talked to Monte Whitmore. We went to over to Grandma Sperry’s (Emily Louisa Miller) and then to Young Ladies Meeting. Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) was on the program, she played the organ. After meeting – we came down home.
