1897 – I went down to the court house and practiced. Returning home I called at the post office for the Burton’s mail and took it up to them. I had dinner there. In the afternoon Mrs. Burton and I went down town while in the Excelsor one of the clerks gave me a red veil, he said he would give it to me if I would promise to wear it. Towards evening Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) came up to Burton’s and wanted me to go down town with her. Coming out of Hyde’s store we met Monte (Whitmore) and he walked over to the drug store with us. We stood there talking for a little while then Monte called to Oscar (Alfred Oscar Lunt) and asked if we might have a geranium or two. When he said we could we went in and got some. Oscar gave Esther two pretty bottles that were empty. When we left the drug store we went out Clifford Bales then we went over to McPherson’s. we came up to Rich’s and then went over the street to Zell Ockey’s to see Aunt Deal (Cordelia Webb) and Uncle Bob Pyper (Robert Alexander Pyper), of Salt Lake. We came down to Grandma’s (Emily Louisa Miller) and Lizzie McPherson called to see us. Esther and I went up to Burton’s to get ready for the dance. Esther, Mrs. Burton and I went to the dance with Oscar. I had quite a nice time. At the party I met a Mr. Steele. Esther and I slept up to Grandma’s.

1897 – Before breakfast I went over to Miller’s to see Will. After breakfast I went down to the court house and practiced on the typewriter for a while. I came back at noon and then went down again in the afternoon. After coming back to Grandmother’s (Emily Louisa Miller), I wrote a letter to Bessie Sperry. I went down town and posted it. I had supper over to Aunt Emily Black’s (Mary Emily Sperry) and in the evening was over there to a rag bee. About nine o’clock I went outside and met Oscar (Alfred Oscar Lunt) and talked to him for a few minutes. He asked me to go to the dance tomorrow night. I went back into the house and stayed until midnight when Grandma Sperry and I went home to her house. Grandpa Webb (David Webb) was buried today. We scarcely knew Grandfather Webb as he very seldom ever came in our home.
