Title Gentile Account, page 069
Description see the affectionate anxiety as to the dinner comforts of their lord manifested by two rival wives is something comical! There was nothing of that shown here; the second wife behaving to the elder precisely as a married daughter would have done. The widowed daughter [TK: of Mrs. no. I] by the bye, owns a pretty white villa, standing in neatly kept grounds which are sur- rounded by a low wall of volcanic tufa coped with red sandstone. The substantial barn and stable standing in one corner of the lot, look as if the owner took good care of her property. Since her husband was killed some years ago on the Mojave by the Indians, she has successfully carried on his business with the aid of her little boys. I believe he brought goods through with his teams from Salt Lake to St George and the other southern settlements of Utah. His widow now either sends out the teams with trustworthy drivers, or accompanies the train herself with her young sons. She is a slender, dark complexioned woman, lithe and graceful in her movements and youthful enough to be quite a belle in the homely society here. After dinner most of the female guests withdrew, to the kitchen I suppose, for I could see them flitting in to the dining room now and then to put away pieces of the dinner service. Mrs. Artemisia Snow and I were accompanied to the parlour by the gentle- men. The lamp on the mantlepiece shed but a faint light com- pared to the vivid changeful glow of the blazing pine logs on the hearth, and some allusion to the solidity with which the fireplace was built, led to the remark that it was under the hearth at the Beman farm [in New York State] that the [Golden] "Plates" of the Book of Mormon were hidden76 Mrs. Snow 7hJoseph Smith said he translated the Book of ,Mormon from golden plates given to him by the Angel IMoroni. They were the record of ancient inhabitants of the Americas. 69
