Description ing water for a big wash in one of the houses. She splashed the water over herself with entire unconcern, so that her single garment clung to her like a bathing dress. Her little girl fol- lowed her, carrying a brass pail of water with such an expendi- ture of exertion that she had burst the seam of her funny little robe almost to the arm-pits, and showed the whole of her wee bronzed legs at every step. But if she offended against decorum in one respect, she was painfully careful in another, covering her head and shoulders with an old blue veil, which ever and anon floated off. Then down went the brass pail, whether empty or full, while she re-adjusted the veil, and then trotted after her mammy. Poor mother, she showed her whole range of brilliant teeth in delight when we stopped to admire the small coquette; and Evy sketched her portrait. Saturday - 18th There was a meeting today at the Tabernacle on the subject of Co-Operation, but I was tired and lazy, and did not go. K. is suffering as he has not done since we left home, and it depresses me. Sunday 19th A b `11 r-1 iant day. There were to be two meetings, but K. and the boys only attended the first, and I went alone to the second.87 The bread was blessed, and while they were handing it round, an elder at a hint from "Brother Brigham" rose to speak. Wndoubtedly a Mormon sacrament meeting, where both the bread and water are blessed and then passed in turn to those desiring to renew their covenants with the Saviour. Young men of the church's Aaronic priesthood prepare, bless, and pass the sacrament. 84
