Title This Little Pig Went to Manti
Description THIS LITTLE PIG WENT TO MANTI Lydia Sorenson Manti, Utah First Place This little pig went to Manti On four little cloven feet. Another pig started the trek from Salt Lake, But died right away from the heat. A rooster, two hens and nine little chicks Were placed on the wagon load. But this little pig had to talk for itself And was driven along the road. Then Brother Barton took off the rope And soon the pig followed along. Trudging after the wagon it came; It knew where it should belong. With no cover over the wagon box. Ten crawled into bed below That stormy night when they all got wet From the blustering rain and snow. Disturbed by the fretting of one sick child, They shivered till break of day. And this little pig at the foot of the bed Slept in a pile of hay. Through mud and dust plodded a cow and a calf And four oxen pulling the rig; While, trotting behind with multiplied steps, Followed the short-legged pig. The ninth weary day, after many a mile, To Manti they came at last. And Brother Bench provided a pen Where this little pig could rest. Incidents from diary of William Kilshaw Barton, Manti Pioneer of April, 1858. - 8 -
