1896 – We cooked for the Thrasher’s all day. In the evening, Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) and I went down to Nortonville to get some butter. We drove on out to Mona to see Ella Larsen. We found there were five or six people from Nephi there: Uncle Charles Abbott (Charles Enoch Abbott), Mrs. Fred Farmer and Messrs. Parley Christensen, Lol Grober and F. W. Chapple. We went to the political meeting for a while then came back to the Kay’s. That is Esther, Rachel Kay, Miss Larsen and I did, the others remained at the meeting. When we got back I met a young man from Eureka. After the meeting was over a crowd came over to Kay’s and sang Political songs. It was after ten o’clock when we left for home.

1896 – I walked up to town and to school. I remained in town during the evening, went up to Burton’s and then down to Grandma Sperry’s (Emily Louisa Miller). Esther (Emily Esther Sperry), Della Kendall and I went to the dance with Father (Charles Henry Sperry), it was at the Little Grande. I had a dreadful toothache, Della and I went over to Miller’s to see if they had something to stop it. We came back and Will Miller took me down to the Drug Store, where I got some relief. Oscar Lunt (Alfred Oscar Lunt) walked back to the dance with us. When we got about half way back there, Will said he had forgotten something and had to go back down town. So Oscar and I had to go on to the dance alone. There was not a big enough crowd here and we did not have a dance after all. Esther and I came down home with Father.
