Title Gentile Account, page 089
Description has ingenuity and perseverance enough if one experiment fails, to try another until he does succeed in introducing a manufac- ture that will pay." She told me of her own efforts to introduce the best grapes and other fruits and to keep bees. She said with rather a sad laugh,--1 had heard it said of her before-that she was a first class gardener, but that her capabilities were thrown away here, where there was no market for her produce. I asked her why she came, and her beautiful eyes flashed as she said, "Because I have Hope and Faith. When they wanted colonists for St George, I said `Here am I, send me.' And mind you, Mrs. K. I don't repent. Only," and she laughed outright, "when you come to see the house I live in now, you will not give me more than my share of credit if you hear of me as one of the first volunteers for the new settlement in Arizona. A tumble-down shanty is a capital thing to make a Saint sit loose to the world." Heigho! I wish the time had come when the profitable industry was found! I feel as one does who sees a spider, spin- ning out a grand web in the parlour on Friday afternoon, before Saturday brings the housemaid's broom, Its supplies of web- material are limited, poor thing, and it and its labours will so soon disappear. If one could only warn it to seek some spot that would be unmolested! This people is lavishing labor for too trifling a return. I suppose as a faithful niece of my Uncle Sam, I ought to laugh in my sleeve at their efforts, as I think how their perseverance may at last subdue diffculites and bring the untamed burning soil into mellow productiveness, and protect feeble artificial industries, at the cost of their own time labour and capital until they are strong enough to live. 89
