Title Gentile Account, page 039
Description her window and sees me rambling on the hills with K. or the boys. But she is very earnest in her declarations that she never repents having left her home and kindred in "the States" for the faith. As we do not touch on polygamy, I find nothing that I cannot sym- pathise with in her religious talk, and her resignation to the Divine Will if she is not to recover. She said with a half-laugh, today, that her faith was generally strong enough to lay hold on the hope of recovery through the remedies given and the ministering of the brethren, but that when the occasional darting stabs shot through the tumor, hope, and patience and faith wilted right down." The children feel quite homesick today, because they saw yesterday evening, in the upper end of the long dining room, Mrs. Elizabeth's family all assembled round the lamp; one read- ing aloud while the others sewed, and the one with opthalmias' leaning back in shadow, listening, as she rocked the baby to sleep. I hear the murmur of their voices, often, from my room. They seem a fond and united family, and the absence of the father does not make itself remarked. Paid a number of visits with a member of the Relief Society today, - A curious difference between the Mormon women and those of an Eastern harem appears in their independence. So many of them seem to have the entire management, not only of their families, but of their households and even outside busi- ness affairs, as if they were widows; either because they have houses where their husbands only visit them instead of living day in and day out, or because the husbands are off on Missions and leave the guidance of their business affairs to them. i'Ophthalmia, inflammation of the eyeball or conjunctiva, was common in early St. George due to blowing dust and sand. 39
