Title Gentile Account, page 014
Description spring up at six, and light the fire [TK: themselves,] and before our nine o'clock breakfast most of the lessons are over. There are so many visitors after breakfast, so many walks and drives to be taken that I cannot be sure of laying hold of my little quicksilver elves at any other hour of the day. Evan [her second son] has taken a fancy to copy the painted faces of the Pi-edes, and they seem to think it a compliment; parading each new adornment before our windows. He has already [TK: filled a copy book with] more than a dozen hideous portraits to send home to E [ TK: (his brother.)].*3 Some are painted yellow some are [TK: done in red, and blue; and others exhibit a primacy ofl vermilion, and others' faces have a groundwork of one of these colours, dotted, barred, or streaked with black. The most frightful looking one I have seen yet, had a yellow tinted face plaided with black. [TK: S carecrow I have seen yet wears a light yellow plaided with plumbage, and his eyes seem to look out from behind prison bars.] They wear their coarse hair falling loosely on their shoulders or braided in numberless little pigtails. None of them have the shaven head and floating scalp- lock of the aristocratic aquiline nosed Indians of romance.24 We drove this morning to see the view from the black-look- ing "mesa" or "bench""5 opposite our windows. K., the boys and I were in R-es: Young's coupe; he and his brother Lorenzo rode in a buggy, and the rest of the cortege in their queer "carriages" which are really light well-sprung carts, with white !jElisha Kent, who remained at home. `-`Apparently painting their faces was a custom of the local Pi-edes. JiBlack Mesa, a prominent elevation immediately west of St. George, now has homes creeping up its face, and the city airport sits on its flat top. 14
