Description For French of Paris was to me unknown." So she spoke French to me, and I responded in English. She is a correspon- dent of Victor H ugo and of other distinguished Frenchmen, and talks most eloquently. It has seldom been my privilege to meet with so cultivated a woman in America. She lives in a wee adobe house where she shelters two compatriots even poorer than herself, a shy old savan[t], and an aged widow. When I called to return her visit there was but a small fire burning in the grate, and Madame made no secret of her poverty, but the little salon was hung with pictures well read volumes filled the chimney corner shelves and the square of musquito netting stretched across each deep-sunk window recess by way of blind, was decorated by an artistically made wreath of pressed autumn leaves, through which the winter sunshine streamed. Mme. d7-J. had been one of the band of women who toiled across the then desert country from the Missouri to Salt Lake, each push- ing before her a laden handcart. The funds of the emigrants were too small to provide a sufficient number of ox-teams, and some inventive genius130 suggested that each should push a certain amount of the lighter baggage. Mme. told me how many pairs of "bottines" [a woman's elegant boot] she wore out on the burning sands and sharp rocks, going finally barefoot for the last few days that she might have a decent pair to enter ""Brigham Young encouraged church pioneers who could not afford wagons to utilize handcarts which they pushed and pulled west. An estimated 4,000 pioneers traveled thus to Salt Lake City, between 1856 and 1861. Morgan, Utah Guide, 128.
