Title Gentile Account, page 051
Description Sister L. I was amused by a remark of Mr. Staines this evening that "a man without a faith was like a man without a head, going wobbling up and down the world, aiming at nothing." A missionary named Oakley60 spent the evening with us. He comes from Kanab in Kane County,61 and is preparing himself to teach his faith among the Spanish-speaking tribes of Arizona, and finds himself sorely puzzled by the difference between the Spanish taught in Velasquez' book,62 and the dialect spoken by the Indians. In speaking of the difference between the Spanish of the Indians and of the books he incidentally compared it with the French spoken in the Channel Isles, and the English in the interior of Norfolk. He has been on missions to both places, but prefers spending his future life among the Indians "who would stay converted." Now in the Channel Isles, he said, when he preached they gladly accepted the Word, but next week it would all be to go over again. They were baptised by hundreds, but they would backslide. Very few held the faith long enough to emigrate. There is but one of his converts here, a woman from St. Heliers, wife to that tinman whose house stands at the foot of Mount Hope, half turned away from the street. Mr. Oakley has been among the Moquis too. He says he considers them as quite civilised: they, unlike the nomad tribes, 6OProbably James Oakley of Springville, Utah, who on November 11, 1871, \vas called on a mission to the Indians. L.D.S.
