Description [Lucy] Young's gate, as she had seen us from the house and came down the path to speak to us. A dirty old Indian came up at the same time. Behind him trudged his patient squaw, clad in a mantle of tags of rabbit skins, and bending under a load of old pots and pans, fragments of bread and meat and tattered blankets, heaped pell me11 in a large circular basket. While little Mablej4 ran for some bread for the woman, the Indian asked me if I was "Bigham Squaw?" Mrs. Lucy said, pointing to herself that she was "Bigham Squaw," and that I was a "Washington Squaw. " He nodded his head, and pointing to his squaw, and to us three women bade me give [President Ulysses S.] "Grant" his testimony, "Harelip's" testimony, that "Weino Polygamy", Good is Polygamy. He evidently thought that he was making a speech which would be agreeable to Mormon ears. Friday At sunset we heard the cowherd's long tin horn, and went out to see the Town troop of cows come home. The great drove halted in the central square, and then each cow walked slowly toward her owner's home. The people were throwing open the doors of sheds, and gates of little paddocks in which the milky mothers were to spend the night; while the cowherds, two lads of twelve or thirteen watched awhile to see that no truant strayed from her appointed road.

She had been a member of the traveling company in care of "Mrs. Jane," a uife of Lorenzo Dow Young. 22
