Title Ezra Clark, page 054
Description A DISORDERED YOUTH and wanderings in early child- hood had the effect of stabilizing and making the life of Ezra T. Clark purposeful. In the days of his earliest recollection he lived in the midst of turmoil, persecution, and anxiety. "Nothing but a revelation could induce me to move," he was heard to say, whenever the subject of new colonization was mentioned, and he was too practical in his thinking to believe anything supernatural would inter- fere with his plans. He was intimately acquainted with the presiding authorities, and they had great confidence in his judgment. One of them asked him once if he preferred to send a man to help colonize or go himself. "I'll send two men," was his response. He was largely free from spiritual superstition. Though his early religious convictions dominated his philosophy, he was, nevertheless, a very practical man. Once he referred to the handcart company as being overzealous in their reli- gion. When there was some talk of his son, Edward, going on a mission, Mr. Clark was quite opposed to the plan and the boy did not go. While it is generally understood in this day that a mission is a matter of option, it was unheard of at that time for a man to feel that he had the right to determine when or where a mission should be filled. 54
