Description consumption. But it had been too long a favorite story with the old lady for her to relinquish the idea that those eggs helped to save K's life. She felt as indignant as the "Friend of Humanity" when the knife-grinder has no touching plea to offer, and protested that "anyway she sent the eggs to K. What he did with them she couldn't say, but she thought the Cap'n must have been very greedy ifhe ate them, with K. lying there so sick and feeble and unable to swallow their coarse food!" K. asked after his old friend her husband, who was a sickly man then himself. Mrs. Benbow said that she had lost him soon after that time, but that she had been "favored" to raise her whole family. Mrs. Lucy said that she was very young then, and did not remember K. She is an exceedingly handsome woman now, I think, and though at least forty has hardly a line of silver in her soft brown hair, and not a wrinkle or sign of coming age about her quick bright eyes and comely face. I forget exactly how she and her mother began their talk, but being both impetuous women, their alternate speech pic- tured a part of their history plainly enough, and as I thought it an interesting description of the experience of the early Mormons I'll try to write it down, Mrs. Benbow's voice has that soft half Southern purr in talking, that I like, and when Mrs. Lucy broke in with her excited vibrating tones, the old lady kept murmuring on her corroboration of her daughter's speech, until a pause occurred Mormon men for a battalion to march from Fort Leavenworth to southern California to assist in the war against Mexico. He was ordered to command the battalion but was taken ill and died August 23, "greatly lamented" by his men.
