1896 – Father (Charles Henry Sperry) and I went up town. We went up to Burton’s. Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) had two letters for me, one from Bessie Sperry and the other from May Reid. Esther and I went down to Hydes Store and to the Excelsor. I went up to Burton’s, down to Grandma Sperry’s (Emily Louisa Miller) and then out home.
