Title Gentile Account, page 066
Description ing region of Pioche in Nevada, where the price was something marvellous.74 At one of the Meetings in the Tabernacle addresses were delivered regarding the difficulties of finishing it or beginning the new Temple they wanted to erect. The brethren had given time and labour and the tithing fund had been stretched as far as it would go, but sufficient building material could not be obtained. "Pioche" offered higher prices, and "Zion" lacked. An appeal was made from the preachers' stand to brethren who owned lumber or other building material not to sell it to the Gentiles at their rate, but to put it into Zion's work at less than half. Elder Johns grotesque looking face (he had, as he used to say, "been mashed considerable" in various accidents) had been twitching for some time, and when the address was over, he jumped up, and laid his stock at the disposal of the Church! And when I asked Louisa today how she felt about his offer, she said, "How thankful she was that grace had been given Johns to make an offering in which she could share, as her labour had helped to make the lumber. Faithful husband, faithful spouse, faithful pair! I was surprised to learn today, that the kind Sister Annie whom Louisa was going to eulogise was Mr. John's first and oldest wife. Her devotion to her husband, the number of their children and their poverty had made me suppose Louisa an only wife. ;qPioche was at the peak of its prosperity at this time. In 1872 ore production totaled $5,46?,000 and the population reached 7,500. It began to decline in 1875. Cooley, Ttuelve Mormon Homej, 20, n16. 66
