1897 (Wednesday) – We moved up town. In the evening Oscar (Alfred Oscar Lunt) took me to an Odd Fellow’s Ball at the Opera House. There was a large crowd present and all seemed to have a good time. About midnight we went over to the Read and Bryan building for supper. We left before the dance was out, and came up home. It seems so good not to go clear out to the farm anymore. Esther (Emily Esther Sperry), Ada Taylor (Ada Ann Taylor) and I slept together up to the new home.
