Title Gentile Account, page 093
Description skin or Kah-a-bow-itsch mountain, from the Muddy River, and from the Shebitz Country had assembled in great numbers. Owing to the want of grass they turned their horses into the fields among the standing crops. They meant no harm, Colonel Hardy insisted, with that blind partiality for his peculiar Indian flock that these Mormon missionaries seem to have. But the young men of the village were easily worked up to resent the trespass, and some who ought from their greater age and knowledge to have known better, encouraged instead of restraining them. They "ran the Indians" right up the black ridge yonder, and then there was a fight. Two Indians had been seriously wounded, one of whom had died just before Hardy arrived, and one of the Shebitz and several Piedes of the neighborhood taken prisoners. The Indians were encamped on top of the mesa, like a swarm of angry bees, and things looked ugly for St George. Hardy went up alone among them, and was allowed to come into their camp unharmed-a proof, he said, of their originally peaceful intentions. They welcomed him indeed, and were willing to receive and give explanations, as soon as he announced that he had come to settle for the Indian that was killed. I asked the meaning of this queer phrase, and what the value of the Indian was reckoned at. He said he gave the squaw a gun, a horse and pair of blan- kets, and some clothing to the children. I suppose this would make the widow an eligible candidate for matrimony! He remained with the Indians five days, and then they quietly dispersed. They told h im that a prophet had arisen in Si-ee Valley in the White Pine District. This is about 70 Miles North 93
