Description than in that paradisaical feast which our Milton so prosaically describes, but in another sense. There were several bottles of grape wine, which however, were only there in courtesy to K. President Young and the toastmaster also had wine glasses, but the healths were all drunk in fair water. [In] Utah fashion th ere were at least as many women as men present; and of course the irrepressible Baby was there in force retiring modestly behind the maternal shawl for refreshment while Mamma serenely partook of the viands on the table. [In] Utah fashion too, the Vice President of the Club was a woman, the Madonna-faced wife of the County Court Clerk.107 [In] Utah fashion again, every man sat beside his wife or wives, with his daughters and their children, radiating from him, the central sun. The President and Vice President of the Club108 waited on the tables in a leisurely conversational sort of fashion, chatting with their guests, and pressing this or that dish upon their notice. We all-there were over a hundred of us, "helped ourselves and passed it along." There was a hum of conver- sation, and when the feast was over-my share of which was principally oatcakes, fresh butter, and "rabbit bush" honey- the toasts began. ""Nancy Cox, an associate in the Washington County Clerk's office, aided Grant Heath, a retired De.ceret Netv~ editor now living in St. George, in a search of old records for the County Court Clerk's name in the early 1870s. The dim signatures Lvere difficult to read but appear to be A. hf. Jackson. "`XJoseph Ellis Johnson \vas president of the Gardeners' Club at this time. He v,as the principal organizer of the club in 1865 and under his aegis, the Gardeners' Club Hall \vas constructed in 1867. Here the club held meetings, exhibited their products, and held socials. The Hall was often rented to other organizations for their functions. Brooks, Utah 5 Dixie, U. H.Q., 269. 115
