Title Gentile Account, page 141
Description go to eternal damnation. I took particular notice of the man, for his dress was unlike any I had ever seen-a broad low crowned hat braided of whole, not split straw. It was much sunburned and had crape round it. No one dreamed of crape on straw hats in England. He had on a gingham coat, the checks at least two inches apart, and on the right sleeve was a rent as if it had been caught on a nail. This dream of mine took place on ship board. It was rather a vision than a dream, for I saw the man distinctly pass between the rows of berths as he came towards me. When we reached Nauvoo, one of the brethren said to me, "Hurry, the Prophet is on the bank superintending the unload- ing." Well, I wanted to see him bad enough, but I had under- taken to attend to an old widow's goods, and by the time I was at liberty the Prophet had gone to the Meeting House. I fol- lowed. One of the brethren asked me if I had ever seen him. "Not in the flesh" I answered `but I shall know soon if he is the man I saw in my dream.' I went in with the crowd, and I saw one man among those who were going up the aisle, whom I picked out at once. "If that's the man I saw in my dream,' says I to this brother-it was B. whom you know. He can testify to it-if that's the man, the one there with the low crowned straw hat and gingham coat, you'll see a freshly made rent in his right sleeve when he turns.' Brother B. had just landed too, and didn't know one man from another there any more than I did. But we watched this one, and he went up the pulpit stairs, and when he turned ttzex was the rent! And it was Joseph, and he wore crape on his hat for a brother who had died just before." 141
