1897 – I walked out home, in the afternoon; I went to bed sick and today Friday (18th) I have not felt very well. Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) and I made a bet, she bet a ten dollar dress that someday I would marry Oscar (Alfred Oscar Lunt) Lunt and I bet that I wouldn’t. So someday I wish to remind her of it, as I’m pretty sure of winning the dress. I received a letter from Bessie Sperry. Well I will leave my journal until some future time.
