Title Gentile Account, page 038
Description lock fronting on the Plaza. A wide trellised arbor, covered with vines leads from the gate to the house, and the children seated themselves to wait for me on the steps, where they tmused themselves hunting among the half dried bunches of grapes that still hung down, which tasted most like raisins, and ipeculating on the amount of life left in the pinks and sweet Williams which are not dead, but merely shabby looking in this lerpetual Indian summer weather. Sister Liston has a large tumor just below her knee, and I go Juite often to sit with her in her enforced stillness, poor thing. rhis morning I found her drinking wine, my prescription, and 1 remarkably strong perfume told that she had been faithfully applying Prest. Young's oil of wintergreen, and taking inter- rally a syrup of "sassafras, winter-green sarsaparilla kinni- tinnick, etc," with which the Mormons say he "always cures :ancer." The tumor really looks a little smaller than it did the %-st time I saw it, or else my fancy, chiming in with the poor Noman's hopes, makes it seem so. She is very patient, and likes to talk of things outside the Iarrow valley of St George. On her table lie no novels, but :here are several books of travels and essays, as well as Mormon :heological works, all well read apparently. There are good xereoscope views too, and on the wall hangs a map drawn in 3en and ink, and coloured by hand, of the neighborhood of k acao [TK: the work of a missionary relative.151 She confesses that she sometimes tires of St George since she nas had to give up work, and envies me, as she sits knitting by 51 Macao, a Portuguese colony on the peninsula of southeast Macao Island, an enclave If Kuangtung Province in southeast China, about forty miles west of Hong Kong. 38
