Title Gentile Account, page 133
Description Her anxiety as to the action of Congress was painful to see. If, as I suspected, sometimes, her faith in Polygamy was weak, what a terrible fate hers would be! Her only claim to a husband's love lay in Polygamy, and if a man should only be able to hold to one wife legally, her Frank must be torn from her and con- signed to rosy placid Sally. He is an affectionate gentle fellow, who is earnestly persuaded of the truth of his religion, and feels that he is not living up to it in this devotion to one creature. He might break his heart, or go melancholy mad, but he would still worship Brigham Young. And she? Poor thing! If she were but his first wife she might do her best to persuade him to run away. But out in the World she could not claim to be his wife, and his real first wife has done nothing to give a shadow of excuse for a separation. When she dies, as she will soon, they will feel as if Death, in coming to separate them, was cruel. But I think He will be merciful in ending the struggle of the passionate heart that cannot find content[ment]. The telegraph has been reporting from day to day the coming toward us of a man who describes himself confidentially at each settlement to the head men as an agent of Mrs. Grant's [wife of U. S. President Ulysses S. Grant], bearing letters of introduction to President Young. The leading Mormons believe K's assurance that he is an imposter, but almost all the women I meet, and some of the men confess a hope that he is what he professes to be. It is cruel for any one to play with the feelings of a people who are wrought up to such a pitch of anxiety as these are, by the uncer- tainty of the action of Congress. The women think that Mrs. Grant's heart has been touched, and that she desires to plead for them. 133
