1896 – I received a letter from Bessie Sperry. In the evening Esther (Emily Esther Sperry), Father (Charles Henry Sperry) and I went up town. Esther and I went up to Burton’s to get ready for the Leap Year Ball. We went down to Grandmothers and Father was there. Lil Black (Lillie May Black) accompanied us to the dance. After the party we went home with Mr. Burton and slept up there.

1896 – In the evening I went up town. Stopped at Grandpa Sperry’s (Charles Sperry) and he unhitched and put away the horse for me. I went up to Burton’s, Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) and Mrs. Burton were getting ready to go to the Theater. After they had gone I practiced on the piano for a while. Annie and Carrie Sorenson came over to bring invitations to Esther, Mrs. Burton and I to the Leap Year Dance. They stayed a while then left. About eight o’clock Oscar Lunt (Alfred Oscar Lunt) cane up, we stayed until the folks returned from the theater. I slept to Burton’s.
