Description They make a soup like what the Mexicans call "calora", mostly made up of peppers and water thickened with corn- meal, like gruel. They have sheep some white and some black, but they never kill a black sheep. The wool of their black sheep is coarser than ours but has a good long pile; longer than ours I think." Evan whispered a request to me to ask if a story we had heard from another Missionary was true. He laughed, and said "Yes. The first day we came, we had made up our minds to eat their victuals if they asked us, as they would feel better inclined to us if we did so. But we carried some crackers and dried fruit in our knapsacks in case they shouldn't be friendly. They made us eat with them, and gave us a very good, though dreadfully peppery soup, with nice white corn dumplings floating in it and we ate very heartily. Next day we sat in one of their rooms where we could see all that was going on where the cooking was done. Two women sat beside a dish of their best white corn: they use purple [corn] in common [use]. They chewed some in their mouths quite a while, and then put it out in a ball on the dish. When they had done this to all the corn, they began over again with the same balls until they were quite gluey, and then they put them in the soup pot. This was the way they had made the dumplings we liked so much the day before! "Were you able to eat them at dinner after seeing the process?" B. inquired. "I was," he replied, "moderately though I choked some, but Brother Pettitqopndeavored too much, and, suffered proportionately. +`Ethan Pcttit arrived with a young family in Great Salt Lake City in 1848. In 1855 he \V;IS sent on 3 mission to the Indians. serving in the Elk Mountain Alission in the hloab 27
