Journal: Jeanette Sperry

1896 (Saturday) – I walked up town and over to Aunt Emma Hague’s (Emma Elizabeth Webb) for my music lesson. Went down town to the post office and store and then up to Uncle Will Sperry’s (William Josiah Sperry). I had dinner there with Stella Taylor (Stella Jane Taylor). After dinner, I went up to Sister Jackson’s to see a picture of my mother (Caroline Webb) when she was a girl. Those in the picture were: Caroline and Emma Webb, Meg and Clarissa Hoyt, Sarah Sperry (Sarah Elizabeth Sperry) and Mary Ann Okey. It didn’t look a bit like Mother does now. Stella went up with me and she and I were sitting out on the lawn when a great big ugly old potato worm crawled on my dress. Oh how it scared me. From Jackson’s, I went down to Kendall’s to see Della, who had just returned from Salt Lake. I went up to Grandma’s (Emily Louisa Miller) and then down home. At the top of the lane, I met Ada Salisbury and she came down home with me. Mother and Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) took her home.
