Title Another New Day
Description It had taken such a long time to save the money to cross the ocean and the plains, but at last they had arrived. The waiting was behind them. They had settled for a time in Farmington, then had moved to Bountiful where they lived in a two room adobe house. When President Brigham Young had called them to move further South and help with the settlements there, they had packed their belongings, hitched up old Bede and the ox and had taken to traveling agian. For one brief moment Mary wondered if the moving would ever end. Would there ever be a real house with a stove and windows with curtains and beds to sleep in that she could call her own? Her reverie was interrupted by the shrill yapping of a coyoce just over the hill. She pulled her shawl tightly against her shoulders and piled more willows on the fire. The long winter night passed and Mary and the children slept. She awakened suddenly. The fire, she must get the fire going! Quickly she lifted the wagon flap. The first rays of the morning sun were streaking across the sky above the eastern mountains. The brittle winter air carried to her the sound of wagon wheels creaking in the distance. John was coming. She looked about her. The fire was out, but the ashes were still warm. It took but a few minutes until the fire was blazing brightly again. She must get the kettle on. A man should have a good breakfast to start a new day. Material for this story was taken from a history of the Welsh pioneers who settled Wales, Sanpete County, Utah, which was written by Hannah Rees Anderson a daughter of John and Mary Rees. - 40 -
