Title Gentile Account, page 064
Description her bed and going to work too soon after the birth of one of her first children. Before the birth of her last she was herself para- lysed on the left side for four months, and the baby when born was for several months unable to lift its head, or even turn it on the pillow. Louisa spoke of the time when she was paralysed as one of sweet peace of mind and body. She had been unable to move about, and had therefore felt free to lean back in her chair, and sew (she could use her right hand, and though she could not lift her left the fingers could hold the end of her seam when placed between them.) She had been able to do up all the sew- ing for the summer while her heart had been free to commune with her God, as she had rarely had time to do in her busy life when cares would intervene, even in the moments spent upon her knees. Her dear eldest daughter, a girl of sixteen had done all the work with what help the younger ones could give. Now, she and Mr. Johns feel it wrong to keep the dear girl from the education she has a right to receive, and so they have sent her to the College at Salt Lake City. The parting is for five years- three to be spent at college, two in teaching in return for her education, and Mary is very homesick, "but not more than I am for her" the mother said, with bright tear drops falling on the baby's neck as sh e d andled him, but still with a cheerful face. The next girl does all she could to help her mother, but the next has the terrible sore-eyes of Southern Utah, and some- thing ails her spine and her poor little fingers are crippled with felons,73 so that she requires help, instead of being able to give 7Wphthalmia, an eve inflamation, afflicted a number of Dixie residents. Felons are a deep, usually suppurative, inflammation of the finger or toe especially near or around the nail. 64
