Title Gentile Account, page 116
Description I don't remember them all. President Young and K. were the first, and then the President of this Stake of the Church. Each made a brief acknowledgment, the last winding up by proposing "The health of the people of St George. May their cellars be full of wine, their barns full of plenty, their hearts full of free- dom and their cradles full of babies!" This was uproariously cheered. Elder Staines made a long and eloquent speech, describing the first Gardener's Club festival at Salt Lake City after their peach trees had been winter-killed year after year; and the pride which they felt in being able to exhibit a half bushel of the fruit at last .I@ With pardonable pride he spoke of the dif- ference now, and the thousands of orchards and vineyards that were thriving in Utah at this date. He spoke of the numbers of different grapes they were faithfully experimenting upon down here, and then "dilating on a wind of prophecy" sketched the fruitful future of the Southern Dixie. Then he spoke of K. and me and of our boys here, and our absent children"0 whom he wished weye here, and in prophetic spirit declared that we would be here many times again, to bless and to be blessed. I wish I could remember the expressions of grateful friend- ship he uttered regarding K. He wound up by thanking me in the name of the people of Utah for conquering prejudice and coming to see for myself what manner of people they were. ""Staines among his other activities, was an accomplished horticulturist and had an experimental garden at his home and at Brigham Young's Forest Farm home, both in the Salt Lake i'alley. ""The oldest daughter, Harriet Aurelia, age eighteen and oldest son Elisha Kent, age sixteen, were left in Pennsylvania with family members to attend school. 116
