Title Basket of Chips, page 082
Description A Basket of Chips the nourishment, and the feeding rootlets have to be reestab- lished which is a very slow process. The old plant must be trimmed away to subsist on the smallest amount until the new root growths are made. There is fighting to be done, and the old cannot meet the obstacles of life as the young are able to. The native sons are already established in the soil and their rootlets are extending their growth and absorbing all the nourishment. In spite of all this, let there be a heart of iron and an in- heritance of fighter's blood, - the old plant will win. Thus it was with us when we removed to another region. The battle gave promise of a hard one for the old stalks, but the young quickly responded, and if the worst calamity had not overtaken us we would have reaped many splendid harvests. But we were so crippled that all but one of us returned and found that the grafting back upon the old growths could be accomplished much to our advantage though the great motive force was gone. A few of the unfinished tasks yet remain which are being cheer- fullv accomplished. A group has been brought together which brings much com- fort to the bereaved ones. Recently a little family of three was wrecked when the husband, a splendid man, was suddenly re- moved from life.' My sister, (the mother) and her daughter became homeless when this happened, and now we are doing what we can for each other. I am providing a home for the two, and they are caring and working for my two motherless chil- dren and me, giving us the comforts that life calls for. I wish it to go on record that this sister, Rose, in her devoted service to our parents and to my children and myself and her own family has portrayed one of the most beautiful and truly Christian spirits that I have ever known. Life has indeed given me a great abundance of the most desirable things the world has to offer, hence I am extremely wealthy. 1 This refers to the death of Wi lliam F. Welsh i .n the early 1920~. Welsh, from American Fork, Utah, had been married to Rose Harwood since 189 I. 82
