Title Gentile Account, page 140
Description "Acquitted? No, McDiarmid was never acquitted, nor tried. He was released on his own bond, and has never been sum- moned for trial since." Wednesday Feb 5. [TK: I had an unexpected attack] K. was able to take a short drive. After it was over, I took a long drive up the Clara Valley with one of the Sisters. The boys rode on horseback in company with Mr. David Cannon to the lime kiln between here and Harrisburg. 121 He had to haul "tithing lime"122 for the tabernacle. The little fellows were determined to make up for their voluntary confinement during K's illness, for they spent their afternoon rambling over the hills with Elder Staines, and after our dinner-supper went to a children's dance in Mrs. Laura's big empty room. Elder S. was speaking of dreams at din- ner. He has a strong belief in dreams, and I asked him if he could give me an instance where one of his dreams had come true. "Certainly," he said "After my conversion I was greatly dis- tressed in mind because I had understood that only Latter Day Saints were to be saved. I thought of my good mother, of my grand- father whom I could remember, standing up leaning on his cane throughout Family Worship though shuddering with the pain of bearing weight on his withered foot. Were they to go to Hell! Well, I d reamed that a man came to me whom I knew to be Joseph, and bade me take courage, that he had never autho- rised any one to say that the Methodists or any one else would "`Harrisburg, a ghost town ten miles northeast of St. George on Interstate 15, was settled in 1859 and for almost fifty years was home to about thirty families. Brooks, Utah? Dixie, U.H.Q., 220. l??The lime was probably donated by the kiln owner as tithing. All good Mormons gave one-tenth of "their increase to the Lord," and often it was given "in kind." 140
