1896 – We cooked for the Thrasher’s all day. In the evening, Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) and I went down to Nortonville to get some butter. We drove on out to Mona to see Ella Larsen. We found there were five or six people from Nephi there: Uncle Charles Abbott (Charles Enoch Abbott), Mrs. Fred Farmer and Messrs. Parley Christensen, Lol Grober and F. W. Chapple. We went to the political meeting for a while then came back to the Kay’s. That is Esther, Rachel Kay, Miss Larsen and I did, the others remained at the meeting. When we got back I met a young man from Eureka. After the meeting was over a crowd came over to Kay’s and sang Political songs. It was after ten o’clock when we left for home.
