Description Career, Rommce, and Fmdy slow boat. We were invited to stay with some friends in Har- lem. After the custom house troubles, we took the cars to Har- lem only to find that the people had unexpectedly left. My wife was ready to drop, she was so weak after her long sea sickness. We then had to hunt a place to stop for a couple of days. Soon we found one and engaged a room, but the landlady would I not let mv wife enter until I I realized then that we were had paid a week's real1 v in America. rent in advance. After two days in New York we took the train for home and arrived safely. We had been long enough married to escape the reception of the newly weds. SALT LAKE AGAIN AND OUR HOME Our life in Salt Lake City began at the home of Auntie Powell"" on A Street. We had the kitchen end of the house and Auntie the two front rooms. We furnished the food and my wife cooked for the use of our part of the house. I opened a studio, took pupils and did portrait or landscape work, and for several years our earnings were barely enough to keep us, but my wife managed splendidly.3" 38 According to Willard Harwood, "Auntie" Powell was not a blood rela- tive, but had been converted to the L. D. S. Church by James Harwood, J. T's father. Harwood interview 23 August 1982. The Harwoods' first home after returning from Europe was located at 125 A Street, north of downtown Salt Lake City. 30 The artist also referred to this period as the beginning of his and Hattie's "real struggle of life." They were deeply in debt, and Harwood was without any regular earnings. In this situation, Harriett's father tried to arrange an appoint- ment for his son-in-law as an instructor of art at the University of Utah, but the attempt was unsuccessful. The woman who did get the job actually took private lessons from J. T. "in order to carry on her art teaching." Harwood's students of this general period included Amelia Brotherhood (who was an "Instructor of Art, Geography, and U. S. History" at the University of Utah from 1894 to 1896)) Emma Frances Daft, Alice Merrill Horne, Lara Rawlins, Rose Hartwell, Louise and Lee Greene Richards, Alma Wright, Clyde Squires, Jack Sears, and Mahonri Young.
