Title Gentile Account, page 048
Description have it for several weeks. That set me thinking. There's wis- dom in the saying "t/zey shall have faith to lay hands on the sick." I oughtn't to have been alone. I hadn't faith enough to drive it out altogether, and my doubts let it find entrance to seize upon me." Jan. 10 Friday. Yesterday afternoon Bishop Snow called to invite us to dine with one of his wives. I thought he said the first, so this morning I took the boys, and went to call on her. I was too sheepish to ask Mr. Snow which was the first wife, but Willie seems to know who everybody is, and he volunteered to conduct me to her house. It is on the north side of the street; a neat story and a half high adobe cottage. She [Artemisia Snow] received me in a pleasant room opening directly off the front piazza. As in all the Utah houses the thick walls impress me with the idea of luxury, for few can afford such walls in the East. I recognized the pretty Mauve tinted paper on the wall as the same that covers our wood box at Mrs. Elizabeth's. The windows were neatly draped with white curtains; there was a nice rag carpet on the floor, knitted mats before the door and fireplace, a lounge, rocking chair and sewing machine, while from the next room came the sound of some one practising on the melodeon. I explained that my visit was to make sure that she understood wlzy we declined her kind invitation. "Twas Brother Jacky wanted you, affectionate Miss Low,"~~ was the sentiment of her embarrassing reply. I had chanced upon the wrong wife! However, I had a pleasant chat. Going j:Apparently a literary allusion popular at that time. 48
