1896 – I went to school. At noon, Ada Salisbury and I went over to Aunt Emily Black’s (Mary Emily Sperry) and then down to Kendall’s. We came back to Aunt Emily’s and Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) walked out home with us. There wasn’t any school in the afternoon. In the evening, Will Miller came down to see Father (Charles Henry Sperry), but he wasn’t at home.
