The innerHTML property returns a string. Strings do not have a "document" property.

Even if they did, you don't want to fetch all of the <span> elements in the document; you want the elements within the specific <div>.

Also, getElementsByTagName returns a collection of elements, which doesn't have a property called innerText.

Try calling getElementsByTagName on the <div> element:
JavaScript
var divs = document.getElementsByClassName("well-sm");
for (var i = 0; i < divs.length; i++) {
    var div = divs[i];
    var span = div.getElementsByTagName("span")[0];
    if (span) {
        var strText = span.innerText;
        ...
    }
}
