Title Gentile Account, page 009
Description "None at all; but it would be best on the whole not to go off quite so far by yourselves. Not that I think the Indians worse than whites; rather better: but would you let little well-dressed children stray of an evening on the outskirts of a town at home alone? Besides the Indians have a temptation whites don't. They value white children so much! There's Mrs. Artemisia's Snow's daughter, who married Brother Thurston, lost a little girl of four years old that way. She was stolen in Weber Canon by Shoshone's."l7 "Have they never recovered her?" I asked. "No," he said, "sometimes they heard of Indians who had seen her. The father spent all he had trying to get her but they have given up and gone to California, where Sister Thurston won't be so wore out by aggravatin' reports that she was here or there." "I suppose so young a child would have forgotten her par- ents by this time!" I said. "Well , yes, it's four years ago now. She's forgotten them, if she's living, but most likely she got peevish and sickly at that age with the change from white ways. Then they'd get tired of her." The pause was as significant as if he had said plainly, "They'd kill her."18 Monday. K. still with some dear Indians. I have passed my time in taking notes of the conversation of one of the most intelli- miles to the Northwest to Panaca in what is now Nevada. May 5, 182, St. George Stake Report. `;A major western Indian tribe whose ancestral grounds were centered in present-day Idaho. lXGeorge W. and Sarah Lucinda Snow Thurston's child, Rosetta, was kidnapped in the spring of 1868 on their farm near Mendon in northern Utah. She was never found, and her family eventually left Utah and never returned. Larson, Eraxtuz SNOUJ, h03=t. 9
