Journal: Jeanette Sperry

1905 (Wednesday) – I arose a little early this morning so thought I would try and write some more in my book. I have had no one come down to see me and have only been up town once since the eleventh, that was Monday the 16th. Oscar (Alfred Oscar Lunt) had to go to Salt Lake on business expecting to return in the evening, so  took the children (Alfred Oscar, Jr., Lillian and Charles Gilbert Lunt) up town to Grandma Lunt’s (Priscilla Pitt), we put Lillian and Bert on the sleigh and Alfred pushed and I pulled and by the time we got there we were both tired.

It is the first time I have seen Edgar (John Edgar Lunt) and Jennie (Lydia Jane Kendall) since they were married, the Wednesday before. They are staying there with the folks (Alfred and Priscilla Lunt). In the afternoon, Jen kept the babies while I went shopping.

We received word from Oscar that he would not be home until the next morning so the children and I had to stay there all night.

The next morning I took Alfred and went up to Grandpa Sperry’s (Charles Henry Sperry). He was feeling quite miserable and had been in bed all day the day before but was sitting up when I came. Oscar came on the morning train and we went on down home. Edgar has been having dinner with us lately. I am trying to make a house dress (calico) but don’t have much time for sewing.

Tomorrow (26 January) is our meeting day. I do hope I will be able to go as I have been absent for so long. Alfred and Lillian went with their father to get a load of hay. They surely enjoyed it, and it was just like a beautiful summer day.
