Title The Black Cloak
Description "I have been living by myself. I can take care of myself. I am a seamstress. I earn my living by sewing." "Where is Brother Larsen?" I had asked. "They have gone on to Utah," was the reply. I was offered food and water, but I refused to eat. I lay down on the bench and pulled the cloak over me. I prayed. Darkness was filling the room when the door opened. To my great joy the Larsens and my friends entered. They had been across town making arrangements with the American immi-gration for my entrance. Yes, I could go on to Utah with them. Telegrams had been sent to Mayfield, Utah investigating the financial status of Cyrus C. Larsen. He had a family and owned a fine, large home on a hill. He also owned the store that stood near his home. He was the town merchant and able to care for all of us. That night we went to a hotel and had food and rest. The next day we boarded the train. I don't know what happened to the black cloak. In the confusion I lost it. Perhaps I left it lying on the bench in the immigration station. But I often think of it, perhaps as the Pilgrims thought of Plymouth Rock--my stepping stone into America. Soon after coming here I was again self supporting. As time went by the cast was removed from my leg. Later I found love, companionship, home and a family, but best of all I found what I was looking for; the pathway to eternity. -116-
