Title Gentile Account, page 146
Description As a boy he had a foot caught and maimed in the cogs of a machine in his father's shop. Barely recovered from this he had to act as driver on the flight from Nauvoo, his father being too ill to sit up in the wagon. One day he stepped out on the tongue of the wagon to adjust something that was amiss in the harness of the forward team. His crushed foot gave way under him, and he fell, the wheels passing over his body and breaking one leg. So then he and his father lay in the wagon together and Harriet and her mother acted as teamsters. I asked whether they did not halt to let them recover, but she said "No. Our folks were no worse off than many others, sick women and children, but we could not halt. We were driven out of our homes in Nauvoo, and our enemies held them. The Indians would have killed us if we had not kept up with the main body. But God was with us, and Brother and Father recovered as quickly jolting along in that springless wagon as if they had been lying at home in their beds." Young F. learned his father's trade in Salt Lake City, then went on a three year's mission to England, where the damp climate nearly killed him. On his return to Salt Lake City he married, and being too weak to work at his trade, supported himself by book-keeping. It was thought that a Southern cli- mate would suit him, so he was chosen as one of the settlers for the colony on the Muddy. He went down, built a tiny house and had his farm fairly under way when his wife joined him with their six months old baby. They suffered great hardships, but had begun to thrive, and had 3000 vines set out, and a larger house building when Nevada proclaimed her ownership of the land, and clapped such heavy taxes on the settlement that 146
