Title Gentile Account, page 055
Description "Do what I say exactly, and I promise you that he will soon come with you. Will you?" `Yes Sir.' "You go home and cook him just as nice a dinner as you know how. You say he sometimes goes to his own church. Do you go with him next Sunday. Does he bring home his wages regularly on Saturdays?" "Yes, Sir, all but two shillings." `Well, then, you ask him what he'd like for his Sunday dinner; and if he likes going to market let him go with you and pick out the joint; or if not, do you pick out a particularly nice one. Cook it just as hot and nice as you can, and season it with pleasant words. My patience! I'd get angry myself if my wife went off to the parish church morning and evening and gave me nothing but a cold snack of a Sunday.' "I'll try it, Sir,' says she, smiling. Well, that very evening there was a respectable looking man came along with the sister, and after Meeting was over she brought him up and introduced him. `Sir,' says he, `I've come to thank you for a good hot dinner; the first I've had for a year.' `How's that?' I answered. `Well, Sir, my wife set before me this day as good a dinner as you'd want yourself. What's up now? I said, and she told me that one of the elders-that's you, Sir, had told her that it was her duty to cook me my dinner and look after me a bit, if she did miss a meeting now and then. So says I, Come, that's the man for my money, I'll go hear him this very night.' And," concluded Mr. Stains, "to make a long story short, he joined our church, emigrated, and they are now doing well in Cache County [in northern Utah]." 55
