Title Gentile Account, page 152
Description She is not of the original Mormon converts, and is a lady in cultivation of mind, and as graceful in speech as in every move- ment of her limbs. She is the least little bit too much given to the Atlantic Monthly Emersonianish Boston way of talking for me. I am when in her company, mentally held up by the hair of my head and obliged to walk on my tiptoes. I confess that I prefer to converse with her on practical matters such as the government of the Indian peons on the large ranche she owned in Spanish California, and the cultivation of the vineyards and orchards there and here. She relinquished her estate there for her faith, and wears a calico gown and toils in a little one story house all whose drudge-work she does herself. Another lady, also an elderly one, flung herself in a half- famished way on my "Littell's Living Age", and straightway invited me into a discussion on the "Stone Man" that speedily showed me I had no chance with her in an antiquarian contest. When I knew her better she used to try to draw me out on astronomy. How accurate her own knowledge on the subject was I am unable to say, for like Thackeray's Amelia I only knew the position of Venus by the stain on the Celestial Globe at School. There was a French lady of rank at Salt Lake City, a Russian baroness 129 by marriag e whose exquisitely pure French accent delighted K. As for me, my boarding school French has grown rusty, and at best was of "the school of Stratford atte Bowe. ""This is Josephine de la Harpe Ludert. Josephine was married to Franklin D. Richards as his seventh wife. The son Josephine speaks of was Joseph Ursenbach from his mother's subsequent marriage to Octave Ursenbach.
