Journal: Jeanette Sperry

1898 (Sunday) – I went to Sunday School, in the afternoon Mr. Pyper and Miss Gunderson came up for a while and Esther (Emily Esther Sperry) and I went with them down to the train. Esther and I came up to Aunt Augusta’s (Emma Augusta Taylor) for Ada Taylor and then we three went over to Grandma’s Sperry’s (Emily Louisa Miller). Aunt Emma Hague (Emma Elizabeth Webb) came up and spent the afternoon with us. in the evening Oscar (Alfred Oscar Lunt) came up and we went to meeting. Brother Iverson gave a lecture on repentance. Oh it was fine. I do so like to hear him talk.

1902 (Wednesday) – I am going to write a brief synopsis of the lives of my two babies up until now after which I would like to keep a daily account of their doings and sayings as often as I have time to write.

Alfred Oscar (Alfred Oscar Lunt Jr.) was born 10 January 1900. When between six and seven weeks old he became he became sick with earsyplis and we nearly lost our baby, it started with a spot on top of his head and we thought he might have been a bit by a spider or something, it spread very quickly the next morning, which was Sunday, we took him down to Oscar’s (Alfred Oscar Lunt) parents, (Alfred Lunt and Priscilla Pitt), and remained there for two or three days, I was ordered to bed early and Grandma Lunt cared for him. He was worse next day and that evening two sisters from the Relief Society sat up with him, I longed to get out of bed and take care of him as he cried so pitifully, finally Grandma came down stairs and got him to sleep. The next day, Wednesday, he was still very ill, Brother Orme came to the house and we had him administer to the baby, he promised he would be well and also that he would have a good a night’s rest, he went to sleep before I did and when he woke up it was six thirty in the morning, surely the prayer had been answered. Inside of a couple of weeks the baby was well again. When he was about four months old we moved down to the Old Sperry farm. We spent the summer month’s there and on returning to town we rented the brown house, it wasn’t a very good place. He was weaned when he was thirteen months old and started to walk when 14 months old. Before this time he walked by chairs or of holding to his buggy he would go all over but on the day he really started to walk he came running to me as I was by the stove cooking breakfast and burned his hand on the stove. That didn’t stop him for he kept running from room to room nearly all of that day.

On the 4th of July he too sick and was sick for two or three days, running quite a fever. But since then he has been quite well and strong. He has been a very good baby having a cross spell only once in a while.

Lillian was born 30 October 1901 and was blessed 1 December 1901. She is larger than Alfred was, when she was two month’s old she weighed 11 ½ lbs. She is quite a good baby although she usually has one real hard crying spell a day, most always before going to bed.

1902 (Sunday) – Today is New Year’s Day. Alfred (Alfred Oscar Lunt Jr) has been very good today. When I went out to get the kindling’s and coal in he stood on the porch and wanted to help me carry them in. Lillian (Lillian Lunt) had been quite restless this afternoon but is sleeping well this evening. We were quite disappointed because my husband (Alfred Oscar Lunt) didn’t come home today.

LETTER WRITTEN TO ROSA LYMAN AND HER HUSBAND, WILLIAM MORE

36 Gregory St.
Longton, Staffs.,
England

4/29/1900

My Dear, Dear Niece and Nephew,

Rosa and Will More, I am delighted to have a few lines from you both and to hear that you are well. I see the baby boy looks according to his picture, he is a splendid looking little follow. You can tell Will that I have been to the native land of his father and mother, Airy Scotland. I went from Longton to Liverpool by rail, to the Isle of Man from Liverpool by boat, and from the Isle of Man to Glasgow by boat which is 13 hours sail and a splendid voyage/ it was, and is a splendid country to live in, but what a lovely site to see men building ships down River Clyde. No, Uncle Alfred did not care much for a soldiers’ life, it did not suit him. I am glad to hear that Cornelius did not go to the Philippines or he would probably wish he were home again. I have a friend in a Scotch Regiment, the Leaforth Highlanders, he is with Lord Roberts at Bloeinfontion, he has been in four engagements viz; Nodder River, Magersfontion, Feedesber Deift, & Pasedeberg, where they captured Crouje, the Boer Leader and and 4,000 men and he says he wishes he were safe back in England as he is tired of the war. He was in the Chitial campaign in India in 1892, and the London war of 1898, and not the Boer War, he was present at the Island of Crete when the Turks were massacring the Christians, so he has seen a little active service.

No there are no more great-grandchildren. Theages of your cousins are; Aunt Elizabeth and Will Bennett children: George, age 20, William, age 17, Samuel, age 15 years, their mother and father are dead, children, all single.

Aunt Hannah and William Johnson’s children: William age 16 years, and Alfred, age 9 years.

Uncle George and Elisa Bailey, Children: Glourie, age 6 and George age 1 year.

Uncle Alfred and Minnie Bailey have one child about 12 months.

Uncle Charles and Annie Bailey, children, none.

We had a slight shock of earthquake here about three years ago, only slight shock. I suppose you have no time to ride now you have a child, as he requires a deal of looking after. Uncle George used to ride a wheel.

No more this time so will now conclude by wishing you both a happy and prosperous wedded life and may you both live long and die happy and may you both live as long as you want and never want as long as you live.

The above letter was written by Charles Bailey, half brother to Zuriah Rowley, daughter of James Rowley and Mary Shirlock.
