Journal: Jeanette Sperry

1897 (Saturday) – After I wrote in my journal on the fourth, Oscar (Alfred Oscar Lunt) came down after dark. The folks (Charles Henry Sperry and Caroline Webb) came home and brought Della Kendall (Adella Kendall) with them, later Oscar and I went up town. I went in his brother George’s (George William Lunt) home and waited until he unhitched the horse, then we went up to Grandma Sperry’s (Emily Louisa Miller). We sat out on the lawn a while then he went home. I slept to Grandma Sperry’s. Monday I walked out home. Della Kendall spent the day here and we made some ice cream and had a nice time. In the evening Esther (Emily Esther Sperry), Della and I started up town and we met Oscar coming down so he gave us a ride to town. He took Esther and Della to Kendall’s and he and I went riding until about half past ten, he took me in his sister’s (Elizabeth Ann Lunt) place where I waited until he put the horse away then we went up to Burton’s.
