March 7*, 1906 (Wednesday) – I took the children (Alfred Oscar, Jr., Lillian, Charles Gilbert and Eva Ruth Lunt) down to their Grandma Lunt’s (Priscilla Pitt) for the day. There was an excursion down here from up north. The merchants coming down to get acquainted with our merchants. There was a banquet then a short meeting and then they all returned to Provo. Our visit today with Grandmother was so that we might see the people and hear the band. There were about seven hundred people and two bands. In the evening I attended a board meeting.
March 8*, 1906 (Thursday) – Mother (Caroline Webb) took Bert (Charles Gilbert Lunt) over to her home to care for him while I took Baby (Eva Ruth Lunt) to Relief Meeting. Clara (Clara Golden) took Alfred (Alfred Oscar Lunt, Jr.) and Lillian (Lillian Lunt) to a dance in the Armory. It has kept me quite busy doing the work and caring for the children.
March 9*, 1906 (Friday) – Lillian (Lillian Lunt) was invited to a doll party at Vick Hague’s (Alma Victor Hague) for their little girl Melba (Melba Hague). She went and enjoyed herself very much and I have heard nothing but doll party since, that same day Ada Wood came down for the day and in the afternoon Edith Ingram came up for a while.
March 10*, 1906 (Saturday) – Clara (Clara Golden) went home for two weeks but came up the following Wednesday to help me wash.
March 12*, 1906 (Monday) I took the children (Alfred Oscar, Jr., Lillian, Charles Gilbert and Eva Ruth Lunt) up to Ada Wood’s and spent the afternoon, staying until 2:30 p.m.
March 17*, 1906 (Saturday) – Pearl (Eva Pearl Sperry) stayed while I went to Relief Conference. I wish I could remember all I heard there. Brother Hickman of The B.Y.U. lectured to us on child life. He said many parents made liars out of their own children by being too harsh with them, they for fear of punishment would lie to the parent to defend themselves. In the evening Pearl and Ruth (Ruth Sperry) slept here. I was going to a Relief Dance but it was so stormy and Mrs. Wood not feeling very I went up there to spend the evening instead. Today Mother (Caroline Webb) and her three girls (Lillian May, Eva and Ruth Sperry) have all been up to spend the day. I am alone tonight with my children (Alfred Oscar, Jr., Lillian, Charles Gilbert and Eva Ruth Lunt).
*Written in Journal March 18, 1906
March 18, 1906 (Sunday) – It has been three weeks since I have written in my journal. We are all well. My husband (Alfred Oscar Lunt) came home at noon on Saturday 3rd March, and left again on the early morning train on Monday 5th. He came again for dinner Sunday 11th and left the next day for up north. He hasn’t been home since.
One morning I went to the bed to get my baby (Eva Ruth Lunt) and found her on the floor under the bed. This is the 2nd time she has fallen out of bed but it doesn’t seem to hurt her much.
*I have put March 9th-17th in chronological order
