Description the Sisters could feel free from home duties for the morning.124 I had noticed that even overworked Sister John's door was closed, and Sister Liston said she had seen her passing with her baby in her arms, and the little ones trotting behind her to the Meeting. This monthly Fast is totally unlike our Lent. The people here literally fast, going without breakfast and dinner. They carry the articles they have gone without to the Tithing House. Perishable things go at once to the sick or poor under direction of the Relief S ociety: more durable articles like tea, sugar or flour form a reserve to be drawn upon for the poor in the coming month; and here, where money is so scarce the self- denial the people exercise is of great benefit to those who are poorer still. Friday Feb 7. "Barton" the imposter who pretended to be bringing a letter from Mrs. Grant, has been here, and is gone. I saw the letter. It makes no effort to imitate Mrs. Grant's handwriting; begins with a little "i", and is signed, "Your truely friend Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant" Before leaving St George the young man confided to one of the Mormons that he was Fred Grant sent by his mother to obtain certain information! I thought he might be some young collegian out on a lark, but no freshman would write such a letter hoping to impose on any one. He asked Mr. Staines for "JFast days at this time were held on week days. Present practice is all day, or until fast or sacrament meeting, on the first Sunday of the month. The cost of the family's three meals is donated to the bishop, who uses the Fast Fund to help the poor and needy. 143
