Title Gentile Account, page 006
Description Monday We reached St George not a day too soon. The Mormons believe it is owing to their prayers that we escaped the storm which threatened us all the way down, and which is raging in the upland country North of us. They look upon all the strange atmospheric disturbances of the last year or two as tokens from the Lord, given to warn the world that these are the Latter Days. One of the "sisters " here asked me whether it had never occurred to me that the Lord was vexed with us for analysing His ways, as He was vexed with David for numbering the Israelites. She was alluding to the work of "Old Probabilities." A new element for O.P. to ponder on, that he is furnished with an extra supply of storms to punish his inquisitiveness!" The news by telegraph this morning shows that the storm which is falling upon us in a succession of warm and gentle showers is fearful in the East. No such snow storm known for twenty years in New York. Business men dwelling in the country cannot go home, etc, etc. The Navajoes are going away tomorrow. A little while ago, I was standing at the window, watching some boys riding wild ponies at a run up and down the street. President Young's coupe was in front of the house, and he and K. stood at the top of the steps consulting about the weather. Just then Ah-hilska, the Navajo leader appeared with Hamblin, coming to bid K. goodbye. Hamblin said something to him, evidently informing him who President Young was. The old man's wrinkled face lighted up with unfeigned delight, and he clasped Brigham improbably a reference to the Millennium which church members believed was close at hand. 6
