Title Two Round Trip Tickets to Fountain Green
Description time seemed three hours to the anxious guests. Stubbornness clouded his face; then there was an expression of relenting, and at last he spoke, loud enough so that all those close to him could hear: "Jeg var not goink to say ingen ting about our trip. Sut jeg know du vould all pester meg og pester meg like dose horse flies pester de horses ven vi cut skunk grass in July so- diss is vy vi har vent til Fountain Green. Jeg tink vat only Hat Stenie, Karen Skrook, Hils Potmaker, og Pig Hansen remember dat Anne Marie vas born og grew up in Fountain Green. Jag met Anne og married her der ven jeg vas doing carpentry work on Aage Aagaard's new huset. Den vi har kommet to Fort Ephraim to lif. "Anne still har many friends der from de time ven she yar a lille pige og a junge voman. Also, her family are der-many ov dem. So, jeg t'ot it would be nice of jeg took Anne to Fountain Green to see dem so dey vould not haf to kora til Ephraim to see her. All day people came to see Anne at her old home. Sfferybody vas happy to see her der, and dey said how pretty Otto G had made her look. Vi had a lille meeting-almost likesom a funeral, og den vi har kom back to Ephraim for dis nice funeral. "But den beaten ting about dat train trip to Fountain Green vas dat jeg did not haf to haf her family stay at meg huset before eller after de funeral. Der iss her vater og moder og four broders so big som Andrew STiomson's off ox Preck, og two system who vould render out two crocks ov lard-each vun. Alle ov dem eat likesom Has Knap's big Percheron horses in plowing time. Og den der are tventy eller tirty ov de small vuns. If jeg had to feed all dose in dat family it vould haf been likesom ven de grasshoppers svarmed over de fields last sommer. Der vould not haf been vun scrap ov food left in dis town- og maybe not in Manti either." 105
