Title The Witchery of Words
Description a good size book representing hundreds of hours of work* I have been fortunate to read that book, owing to the kindness of Mrs. Adele Jensen, Ms daughter, who resided in Richfield. I should like to add one word from this Gottfredson book to my list of fascinating words. It ia a coined word, completely original, and yet ijnbued with character to fit the situation. It challenges one's imagination. This is the quotation: "In a few days I was sent over to the Sanpitch Hiver to herd sheep with Cataret Howe. When it was time to put in the grain, I quit herding and went grubbing and burning brush for Oscar Winters We camped in a field about three miles from Mt. Pleasant. Our food was mostly, as we called it 'Guttamagrowly.' It consisted of hard bread cooked in bacon grease and water* I had an appetite like a wolf and could eat anything I could get and all I could get of it." The words and connotations I have chosen continue to be of rewarding interest to me. They are meaningful, nostalgic, and glow with life. They strengthen my appreciation for their "irresistible fascination,"-the Witchery of Sanpete Words. 1Lafcadio Hearn by Elizabeth Stevenson. 2William Cowper. .&.
