Title So Be It
Description measure. It was, I am sure, the most certain way she knew to praise Him. And so tomorrow I am going from Sanpete because I, too, have a gift that must take root and blossom. I know I can teach. I know I can touch a vulnerable spirit. So I shall go where I am hired. I will take with me the memory of Tobit's gift to me, my gift to the actress, and her ultimate gift to God. Because I must find food for my gift to grow in, I take also God's great gift of hope. And now it is night. Sources: Mr. LaVar Jenson, personal knowledge; Mrs. Deneice Guyman Blackham, family stories. SO BE IT Norma S. WanIass Manti, Utah Non-Professional Division Second Place Short Story I, Fred W. Cox Jr., was sixteen, going on thirty, when the Cox family arrived in the Great Salt Lake Valley on September 28, 1852. We departed Kanesville, Iowa, on June 20th of that year, with two heavily loaded wagons pulled by three yoke of oxen each, which Father and I drove to Utah, and a light wagon that Will Arthur, my eleven year old brother, drove. Upon arrival we were assigned to a company that was forming to go south to Manti, in the Sanpete Valley, on October 4th. This was where we wanted to go; we had family there that came with Brigham Young in 1847, but we thought we might be allowed to rest first. But it was not to be. In Manti we were welcomed by Grandpa Morley, Uncle Edwin Whiting, Uncle Joseph Allen and Aunt Lucy, Uncle Orville Cox, and Sylvester Hewlett, in whose house we lived for the rest of the winter. We were so grateful to have a roof above us once more, and to feel the warmth of a fire encircling us. In the Spring we moved into the Stone Fort. We all worked hard, for through the years Father had six wives and thirty-six children that must be provided for. -26-
