Description gone, but Sister Kent dropped the tea tray breaking everything and not seeming to heed it, as she cried "What blessed influence has been here! This room is too holy for me to enter. The air is too good to breathe!" I told her all about it after a while though at first I mumbled in my speech, and `made' at my words like a child learning to talk. Well, the end was that I did come out to the valleys of the mountains, and my first son was born some months after our coming. I never saw the stranger again, but once when I was in ill health and dreading to die in an approaching confinement. Then he appeared again, and bade me cheer up for I should have my child and recover. That baby never saw its father by daylight for eighteen months. He was then in hiding on one of Hickman's accusa- tions of murder.120 Yes, and when he gave himself up they kept him over seven months in prison. They penned him up so closely in a wee cell that his health was injured. I went to see the officer in command, and he was a Scotch major, and when he heard my Scotch tongue he listened to me kindly, and went to see McDiarmid. He did all he could to alleviate his confine- ment, and had him often to his own quarters where they had many a long talk." `~"William Hickman was a bodyguard of Joseph Smith \vho later served 35 sheriff at Kanesville, the Iowa iMormon Trail settlement named for Thomas Kane, now Council Bluffs. Hickman left the church and wrote a book, Willium Hi&an, Brigham? Destroy- ing Angel (New York: George A. Crofutt, 1872) giving details of alleged murders \vith which he was connected. He died in Wyoming in 1833. Also see Juanita Brooks, ed., On the Mormon Frontier; The Diary of Hosea Stout, 2 vols.
