Title Gentile Account, page 102
Description protect it? Well, Father sent my eldest brother right over to Nauvoo for counsel, and President Young bade him tell Father not to bring us all back to Nauvoo again, but to send over to Carthage for a guard. He was to get a friendly neighbor who was not a Mormon to make an affidavit that the attack was impending over us." "Well, the officer in command," resumed Mrs. Benbow, "said he was real sorry, but he had had to detail so many guards, that he couldn't spare one to Mr. Benbow. My son had now to ride over to Nauvoo, for President Young had told him if the officer didn't give him a guard, he would send him some of the brethren from Nauvoo!" "Mother and Father were terribly anxious" when Thursday came," interrupted Lucy. I shall never forget it. Father was old, 25 years older than Mother, and was very sick. As night came we felt worse. Brother had lost so much time going from Nauvoo to Carthage and then back home for the affidavit, that he had not been able to let us know what had happened. Father calculated that if he got a guard in Carthage, he'd be back by sunset. If he had to go on to Nauvoo, it would be after dark before he could come. When it grew dark we knew we need not hope for help from over Carthage way. Mother put the children to bed in the front room, and hung quilts over the windows. Then we sat and watched in the kitchen; at least Father and Mother did, but I was too restless, and kept moving about between Mother and the children. I thought our old clock ticked louder than I ever heard it, though it seemed to go slower. I was only fourteen then, and very excitable, or was it fifteen, Mother?" 102
