Title Gentile Account, page 090
Description Then, we'll come and drive the accursed Mormons out, to make new combs of honey in still remoter deserts for us to eat in turn. But how glad Uncle Sam should be to have these tamed, civilised settlers come to subdue the desert and make it blos- som; so that it will help to feed his miners instead of having the savage colonists who usually pioneer ahead of civilisation! The children ran out to meet me, having found their after- noon intolerably long. They had a confession to make. Was it wrong to draw pictures? They had done so towards the end of the time, because they were afraid they could not help being cross with having nothing to do. I re-assured them and took them out for a walk which we enjoyed greatly. Jan 20. Elder S. [Staines] much to our regret has received orders to go on a mission. Only a day or two ago he was planning his occupations for the spring, and exulting in the idea that he should for once be at home to see his plants bud blossom and bear fruit. He had read us passages from the letters of both his wives (!) breathing their longings to have him back as they were anticipating "for a longer visit than usual" as one sarcas- tically observed. But he takes his disappointment bravely, and though cast down and silent at breakfast time, began over the supper table to talk cheerfully of seeing his sister in England once more, and of his unhoped for chance of a peep at the Vienna Exhibition. I wish I had half as cheerful a confidence in Heavenly Providence as he has in the omniscient wisdom that despatches him! It is a little bit like the way good Christians strive to see the blessings hidden under what are apparently unmixed calamities. 90
