Description home an Ancient Mariner literally stopped "one of three," for an old fellow who was leaning against the smithy wall started forward as the boys paused to look in at the doorway. "Whose children, and whose woman be you?" "General K's" I answered. He told me that he had nursed K. when he lay ill at Papillon Camp in `46. es* that he and a woman watched in the tent one night when he made sure he [Kane] was going to die. That, he explained, "was because I hadn't faith. I said we had ought to have brandy for him, he was in such a flamin' fever, but I hadn't no money. However another man bought some, and we bathed him-Take off your veil, I want to see what sort of woman he's got! Humph!" as I complied a most disparaging humph it was, "So he lived to marry you! Well, I'm a rough man. I was raised a sailor, and as you see I take too much sperrits. But don't think the rest of the Saints is like me! I've got two as good wives"-Here K. interrupted me. He was looking over my shoulder as I wrote, and said it wasn't kind to make fun of a poor fellow who in his better day had dealt kindly by my husband. I ceased writing about him in my diary, and I would not insert the fragment in my transcript but that it reminds me to sXThis illness occurred following Kane's first meeting with the IMormons in 1846. He had traveled west from Philadelphia to visit a friend at Fort Leavenvvorth, and hearing the 1Mormons had left Nauvoo, Illinois, he traveled there. He found it deserted and according to his description, there were "mobs reveling in the temple." He recrossed the Mississippi River to where the Mormons were camped near what is novv Montrose, Iowa. There he became ill and according to Kane family legend, vvas nursed back to health by Brigham Young's wife, LMary Ann Angel1 Young. Thus began Kane's long, close friendship with Brigham Young. 49
