Title Scandinavian
Description he got mad and slammed the door shut again. 1 was pretty mad by that time, so 1 left the door shut, laid my baby on the bed and took a piece of wood that held the window up. His shoulders were bare, and I wore that piece of wood out on him. I could talk and understand almost everything they said. He laughed at first when he saw me get a stick. I warmed his shoulders good and told him one of us was going to lose now. He tried to get his blanket from around his hips to his shoulders, but I did not give him time He squirmed and cried like a baby I wore the stick out on him and then opened the door and told him to go. He went howling to their tents which were in sight of the fort where we lived. He told Aropine a pitiful story. Aropine soon came to see what the matter was, and I told what the fellow had done. He said it had served him right. The Indians always called him a squaw after that. My son that I speak of is here with us today playing the drum in the Martial band. I will say here I have passed through all the persecutions with the Saints in my youth, but there has never been anything as trying to me as the Indians have been to me. I will close by thanking my Heavenly Father for his protecting care over us all. 1 hope that 1 am worthy of a name in His Kingdom, and I ask an interest in the prayers of my brethren and sisters that I may be faithful to the end of my days in the gospel. Amen. -Eunice Warner Snow SCANDINAVIAN Merilyn Fox Alexander Second Place Non Professional Poetry Ruth nee' MAY crossed the ocean from England to the new world.
