1897 – It was fast day. In the morning when I went in the parlor, Mr. Burton called me in the bedroom and gave me a note from Oscar (Alfred Oscar Lunt). He was mad at me because he didn’t get to see me the night before. I don’t know how long he waited. I answered the note and Mr. Burton took it down to him. Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) and I went to Sunday School. In the afternoon Della Kendall came up and we went for a walk up to our new house and then down town. We went to Kendall’s and then up to Burton’s. In the evening, Shed (Shedrick James Lunt) and Oscar Lunt, Eddie McCune and Fred Moore came up. Our Lon (Charles Alonzo Sperry) was there also. After the boys left, Esther and I took Della home.
