Description porting. As this unpaid labor necessarily consumes much time, the Bishop is greatly assisted by the Female Relief Society of each ward who are bound to acquaint themselves individually with the condition of their immediate neighbours, and who call in their turn upon the Bishop. He is not released from per- sonal investigation into the cases himself, nor do the women of the Relief Society merely report to him. They hold what we call Dorcas Meetings,*6 not only for the poor but for overworked mothers who are not called poor, but who cannot keep a ser- vant. "Help" "hired h e p" is hard to obtain in Utah. In Salt Lake 1 City the "Gentiles" with one wife can easily outbid the Saint who must hire six times as many servants for his households. But all the Utah women do a large share of the house-work themselves, and of course a friendly hand to aid in the "fall sewing" is a great comfort. Again, the Relief Society details members to sit up in succes- sion with the invalids in the Ward. Just now they are organ- ising a plan to get the squaws of the neighborhood to come in at certain times to be taught to cut out and sew. The poor creatures most ambitious effort in that line at present is to take a piece of c 1 a ice or flannel, double it the length of the garment needed, cut a hole for the neck, and sew the sides up partially, leaving a slit at the lower end of the seam for freedom in walk- ing, and another at the top for the arms to go through. The squaws gladly wear wear [&] cast off dresses when they can get them. I saw one today who was employed in carry- X"Dorcas was a Christian woman of New Testament times who made clothing for the poor. 83
