1896 – Went up town to school. After school May Grover and I went down to the Excelsor (It must have been an opening of the store after being closed for additions and remodeling).i went up to Burton’s and had supper there. Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) and I went down to the Academy Hall for a meeting, being too early, we called for Lil Black (Lillie May Black). We met, Lon Ingram and he went with us to the meeting. Afterwards, he took us home. I stayed with Esther up at Burton’s.
