Title Gentile Account, page 125
Description Last night, I came home earlier than the rest of the party to put my boys to bed. Our lamp had been carried over to the Hall, but there was light enough in the room from the win- dows of the ballroom across the street. The boys fell asleep immediately, and I groped my way into my own chamber intending to go quietly to bed. The children's door stood open, and Sister Ellen and her kind old husband paused outside lan- tern in hand as they passed on their way to their own quarters. "The little fellows might wake and be lonesome" said she, and they came in, and placed their candle on the table, and then tucked the bed clothes round the sleepers, and kissed and blessed them before they stole away in the dark with their empty lantern. Truly "the barbarous people show us no little kindness." President Young and some of the other head men have gone to Tocquer-I don't know whither I spell the Indian word rightly: it means Black-to meet the party who are to recon- noitre towards the St Francisco Mt. in Arizona. They receive their final instructions and then launch boldly into the Colorado Desert. The Bishop of Kanarra"4 heads the little band. That dreary windswept settlement will be more desolate than ever, for there will be no news of the Head until he returns to Kanab: unless they come across some Indian runner. We took a drive this afternoon with Elder Staines, meaning to visit a spot in the [Santa] Clara field where the wash of the "1Lorenzo W. Roundy, was the bishop of Kanarra through which the Young party passed a few weeks previously. Roundy had settled previously in the Little Muddy Mission in Nevada, and in 1873 he moved to Arizona to help colonize the area. He was drowned at Lee's Ferry while crossing the Colorado River in 1876. Cooley, Twelve Mormon Homej, 116, n57. 125
