"Yes, I felt bitterly at first. Such thoughts frequently came up. After those first days, I did not live with Hugh for over a year. He was a missionary preaching without purse or scrip, and would often come back to me without a shoe to his foot. It was my pleasure to earn my wage and clothe him from head to foot.

I thought "Well, if I have enough to feed and clothe my boys, and teach them to live up to the Gospel till they can earn their own living, they will be as well off as Hugh and I were before them; and what Hugh does with the rest at his death is no concern of theirs. They'll get more than their parents did. "I must admit, however," she went on, that some of the other Sisters say I know naught of the trials of Polygamy. My word, though! I'd have slapped any one's face twenty years ago that dared to tell me I'd submit to what I have submitted to."

They nodded goodh umoredly to each other, and she went on, "Mind, I haven't the least fault to find with McDiarmid. He has always considered my feelings and treated me with the utmost respect, as the head of the family." "Is the first wife, then, looked upon as the head of the family?" 121
