1896 – Mother (Caroline Webb), Baby (Ruth Sperry) and I went up town. We stopped at Grandmother Sperry’s (Emily Louisa Miller) then went over to the School House and talked to Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) for a while, then we went down to the Excelsor. Mother had some shopping to do. Mother had some shopping to do so Mrs. Burton and I went to the post office then to Hyde’s Store and on the drug store. While waiting for a prescription to be filled Oscar Lunt (Alfred Oscar Lunt) entertained us by showing us their Christmas goods. He gave both of us a tiny little doll.
