Description understand them, but he failed to find more than one or two words that were identical. "Peek" for instance, means a kind of flat bread baked on a stone in front of the fire, in both languages. We walked to the great Tabernacle to Meeting, after lunch. It is unfinished still, and as they are plastering the basement, the Meeting was held in the immense empty church above. The great size of th d k e ar red stone courses of the wall struck me in comparison with the slenderness and poor quality of the timbers. K. said that I would not think so ill of it if I had not been spoiled by the timber I see in our own lumber yards in the Allegheny Mountain. A rough platform had been erected for the speakers, elders, and honoured guests, and a little stove was glowing beside my chair, so that I was unpleasantly warm, but I noticed that there was a strong draught, and that several people on the platform buttoned their great-coats, and one tied a spotted handkerchief round his head. S-Qcame in very late, threw his handkerchief over his head, and subsided immediately. In meditation? Perhaps! He snored audibly until the time when we were all beginning to fidget a little, preparatory to dismission, when he rose, took off handkerchief and great coat, and began an address that lasted nearly an hour. It was delivered extempore appar- ently, but was a well reasoned doctrinal sermon, as dry and quite as orthodox as any that I have heard at home. The enormous audience sat it out with great patience, but as we slowly made our way out I fear I heard more than one sub- dued murmur among the women that they did wish Brother S. -`?Perhaps Erastus Snow or William Staines. 31
