1897 (Wednesday) – Lon (Charles Alonzo Sperry) returned to Mammoth. While passing the ranch on the train he threw off a note, telling me to go up town to play to a party that evening. I walked up and went to Grandmother Sperry’s (Emily Louisa Miller), Mother (Caroline Webb) was there. In the evening Oscar (Alfred Oscar Lunt) came up and we went up to Burton’s. Later we went over to Sorenson’s to a lawn party. I helped Uncle Will (William Josiah Sperry) play, Will Jenkins also assisted him. I slept over to Burton’s.
