Title Two Many Acres, But Not Enough Freedom
Description He bad met Che bishop and other officials at the Point of the llountain. They, too, were on tbeir way to Salt Lake City to file a' claim for the sane land! They were very angry that Parley had been there ahead of thein. When Parley reached home his horse was all lathered and give out. Kind hands took his reins and rubbed his horse down and put a blanket on him. Parley, not even taking time to rest, took a fresh mount. It was very frisky and afraid of Hoc the way Parley had dressed him before he paraded him through the streets of **oroni. He had tied Doc's hands behind him, tied a red kerchief around and across his face, making him look like a real western desperado who would have been treated this way if he had been readied to be hanged. The whole valley was up in arms, almost hysterical in trying to support and plead Doc's cause. 3ecause of their regard for him they brought food, did his chores and reminded each other how he had healed their sick animals and helped each family in many ways. The bishopric may just as well have hung Voc. When they saw how much he was loved, they almost wished they hadn't bothered to see this thing through. When they saw how ill Doc became and how it affected his family, they could see this robust man failing and losing his spark and enthusiasm. But after all this, the Presidency called him to go to Rockville, Washington County, to help the poor, unqualified settlers there. Poc, so used to being obedient, accepted this call as he had all others; but after the terrible things that had been done to him, he had to be released because he was too old and too ill to do the demanding, hard work that such calls required. He would never ask anything of others that he could and would not do himself. He came back to his loved Sanpete and only after several years had passed, very sad years, did anyone try to make right the wrong. 38
