Description fields where my children eagerly picked some bolls that had been forgotten. The lanes between the fields were overhung with cottonwood trees whose tender gray green hues harmon- ised with the soft misty sunshine. The village lay on either side of a broad brown road, the water gurgling briskly in the "ceqs", ( ace uias , and each little house standing apart in its q ' ) garden, half-buried in foliage. The smithy in front of which we stopped to water our horses, stood under the shade of very large trees. Altogether, the place had such a European look that I was not surprised to learn that the inhabitants are Swiss. They were so poor ten years ago, that their passage out was paid by the Perpetual Emigration Fund.@ Now, each has his little adobe house and a share in their Co-operative fields and herd, and they have long ago repaid their passage money.50 Tuesday 7th.

The Fund was to be maintained by those who received help by repaying the loans as soon as their circum- stances permitted. The October 1849 conference sanctioned the establishment of the Fund and appointed a general agent to disburse the money. A committee was designated to gather contributions, and the operation was placed under the direction of the First Presidency of the church. For a good description of the Fund and its operation see Arrington, Greut &nin Kingdom, and Gustive 0. Larson, "History of the Perpetual Emigrating Fund Company" (master's thesis, University of Utah, 1926). 5aTwelve vears (1873) after being sent to Santa Clara, the settlers had "houses, land, vineyards, horses, wagons, and cattle and are sending 100 children to school, besides having a number too small to go. The donations they handed into Bp. Hunter he sent to the poor in St. George, they having no poor in Santa Clara." Brooks, Utuhl Dixie, U.H.Q., 211. 37
