Title Gentile Account, page 050
Description say that this was the only intoxicated Mormon I saw during my stay in Utah. To return to my diary. After lunch I went to see the right Mrs. Snow. Her house stands in the same garden-vineyard as our Mrs. Snow's, and has a wide and lofty trellised arbour at the back. The house commands the same view as that of the wife I visited this morning, and is about the same size, and equally comfortably furnished. She was using her sewing machine-a different one from that patronised by the two other Mesdames Snow. They are three very different looking women, too, though all have pleasant intelligent faces. After leaving her we met a little four year old boy, a child of the fourth wife's who told us he was taking a message "from Mother to Aunt Minerva". Jan. 11. K. has had several rides on horseback lately, and was able to walk over two miles today without pain, a thing he has never done since the War. He has secured a very nice pony for the boys, which the owner anxiously endeavored to persuade him to accept as a gift. Our little fellows enjoy their riding lessons excessively. The day is cloudy, and I feel depressed by the interruption of the mail service caused by the Epizootic [epidemic disease], which is on its way here now, and the heavy snowstorms in the canons North of us. The telegraph informs us of Louis Napoleon's death. 59 I wonder whether the news agitates the world from which we seem so completely shut out. Missing K. and th e b oys today I passed several hours with 5"Louis Napoleon, at that time was emperor of France. 50
