Title God Blessed the West
Description "Did Father Morley send you?" He shook Lowry with powerful grip. "Why you no tell me, Walker, that Father aend you?" ¦1 tried to, Chief," but Lowry knew he had avoided mentioning from whom he came for fear If they killed him they would know right where to go to attack, "Father Horley,...Father Morley send you?" John shook his head vigorously in the affirmative. Walker went on, ¦'Father Morley white Chief. He Walker's friend, he baptise Walker, he my brother. His God, Walker's God, too! Let Lowry go!" The Chief, really in command now, stood at full, proud height. "Leave Lowry alone!" he screaned through tightly stitched lips, 'lowry brave dan, come alone to see Walker' Give hiJE furs and food!"

"What's wrong with me? Have I lost my mind?" he asked of hiaself aloud, and as he thought he heard, "Accept Christ as the way because there is none other way under heaven whereby man can be saved." (2nd Nephii 31i2l) He was sure now that in his weakened condition, he was delirious! The voice, so deep yet so soft, continued, "I an the vino, ye are the branches! He that abideth in me and I In hin, bringeth forth more fruit, for without me ye can do nothing." (John 15i5) "Yes, President and Patriarch Morley, you were right.
