Title Gentile Account, page 096
Description scraps of old Mormon teaching that the man had picked up. If he was genuinely inspired-of course he would have been inspired to come at once to him, Brigham Young. Brigham Young is so shrewd and full of common sense that I keep forgetting he is a Mormon himself, and this answer, so natural a one from his point of view took me completely aback. I felt as if I had asked one lunatic his opinion of another! Jan 21. We started out this morning to climb to the top of the mesa, but passing Mrs. Lucy's [Young] house we saw her in the garden. She begged us to come in and let the children see the process of watering it. The result was that we spent a couple of hours there. At this time of the year there is no limit to the time allowed for watering, but later, when the crops start, each lot has but three hours in the twenty four assigned to it. The lots in the town are 80 X 160 but most of the families own two. She has three, one of which is allowed to remain uncultivated, so that she has nine hours water-time for the two lots. The time, she says, occurs to each in turn and when it is in the night-time the gardener stays up to superintend it, and at the end of the time wakes the man whose garden is to have the benefit next. Her garden is the best looking in the village, and I suppose its arrangement is a model. From the acequia in the street, which runs very rapidly there are two troughs made of boards which traverse her lots, one in front, the other about the middle. At intervals there are "gates" in the sides of the troughs- that is slices of board mitred out, and when replaced acting as valves which are kept closed by the pressure of the water. 96
