Title Gentile Account, page 107
Description paroxym similar to those he had after first being poisoned. I think that he was not poisoned. From the description they gave of his symptoms, and of the anxious distressed expression his countenance henceforward wore, I privately concluded that his anxiety of mind acting upon an enfeebled constitution had pro- duced gastritis the first acute attack of which they attributed to arsenical poisoning. It shows however how miserable the con- dition of the Mormons must have been, to have fancied every man's hand against them." "Oh Mrs. K!" Lucy said "Can you wonder that we feel hard when we anticipate the coming of the same troubles again in our own mountain valleys, our precious refuge that God opened to us, when we abandoned everything to our enemies and sought Him in the Wilderness? He gave it to us after all our hardships. I can't believe He will let us be driven out." She was thinking of the Bill now before CongresstO Like most of the women she contemplates giving up everything and going again into the wilderness rather than give up Polygamy; and her pretty garden and home are very precious to her. She spoke of the time ten years ago when Camp Douglas104 threat- ened to shell Salt Lake City. She was then living there in her husband's house, and her youngest child was a newborn baby. All the men had gathered at President Young's where a white flag was hung out. She of course couldn't move. `"`The Frelinghuvsen bill, penalizing polygamists, passed the United States Senate February 25, 1873, but never passed the House. Jensen, Church Chmtdogy, 80. "J+Fort Douglas, on Salt Lake Citv's east bench, KYIS established bv the United States Army in 1862. It existed until October 1991, \vhen it was officially closed, \vith most of the property going to the expanding University of Utah. 107
