Written November 17, 1905 from memory (posted today as it refers to dates prior to November 17, 1905:
1905 (Friday) – 11/17: Been Too busy to write for some time.
1905 (Monday) – 9/25: Clara Golden came to live with me. I like her real well and she has promised to stay all winter. Father (Charles Henry Sperry), Mother (Caroline Webb) and Pearl (Eva Pearl Sperry) have returned home from Frisco, it surely was good to see them again and to run over and spend a few hours again at Mother’s. I was also glad to have my little chatterbox home again. Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) came home a few days before the folks, but left Lillian (Lillian Lunt) to come home with them. My husband (Alfred Oscar Lunt) is still on the road and doesn’t get home very often, and when he does come, he only stays a few hours at a time. My Baby (Eva Ruth Lunt) is growing fine. I shortened her just after she turned three months old, at one month she weighed 9 ½ libs, at two months, 12 lbs. And at three months, 14 lbs., at four months, 15 libs. We all enjoyed pretty good health except for having a cold sometime and I feel to thank the Lord day and night for his many blessings to me and mine. Oscar weighs 218 libs.
I have been gadding quite a bit this week. On Sunday, Pearl stayed with the children while I went to meeting, after the evening meeting, Clara had a crowd come up for a while. On Monday, I went down town and about 4 o’clock in the afternoon, I took Baby and went to Mother’s and stayed until about eight o’clock. When I reached home, Clara and the children (Alfred Oscar, Jr., Lillian, Charles Gilbert and Eva Lunt) were in bed and asleep.
