Title Gentile Account, page 148
Description was, for they would hang him if they caught him without a woman being round. So she did, poor Mother. She was hardly ever off the watch. Father lay sick three months, and when he could rise and walk, she was so thankful! One afternoon she had promised t o d o some quilting for a neighbour and Father said he would walk part of the way, and buy some groceries on his return. They went out of the door together, and when they parted I saw Mother stand watching him out of sight. Then she went to the neighbours and I returned to my work. Father had only left Mother about five minutes when he reached the grocery. There a pack of half drunken loafers seized him as a "damned Mormon"; put a rope round his neck and strung him up to the awning. Then they let him down, half choked, and asked him if he was a Mormon still. He answered "yes" and they hung him again, and again let him down. The third time he had swooned, and a man of some influence in the town, a lumber-dealer, came past and cut him down. This man kept back the crowd and brought Father to his senses; and then let him totter home, the crowd only throwing stones at him. But, thank God, they didn't follow him then. In the meantime I sat quietly sewing, when a little boy burst in. He was the son of the neighbour at whose house Mother was. "Hatty," he cried "what do you think! They've hung your daddy." "Oh, hush!" I answered "Don't joke about such terrible things!" "You'll find its no joke" retorted he, "I'm off now to see what yer Ma'11 say when I tell her." Off he flew, and Mother ran home just in time to help me drag poor Father over the door sill, and get him to bed. 148
