Description gent Mormon Interpreters. Like the rest of the worthies he has a standing apology for all Indians. He maintains that the con- duct of the Apaches even is excusable. "In 1842" he said, "a man named Johnson came among them with eighteen men. He said he had come from the East to make a treaty of peace with them. They were glad in their hearts for they know'd the United States was superior to Mexico and they thought a great deal of him and showed him the best trapping on the Gila.

As for Olive, they didn't keep her nor her sister, but left them with the Chenowants on the Mojave, and they are real good Indians. "Why!" I exclaimed "my book here says they starved the sister outright, and nearly killed Olive." "Books don't always tell the truth," he returned. It was hard times then with the Chenowants, but the family that took them did the best they could for them. Their adopted mother fed them on corn and beans when her own family had nothing but roots. The sister couldn't stand it, being weakly, and if Olive had fared like the Chenowants she couldn't have stood it neither."19 "`The massxre of the Oatman family and the kidnaping of the two girls in 1851 fed fears among uqon trains headed for California, particularly concerning the Apaches. 10
