Title Gentile Account, page 157
Description God and lived up to his faith: that he meant to live and die in the same belief; and that he felt free from the cares of the world and ready to go wherever he might be sent, or to act in what- ever way he might be called upon. It often strikes me what freedom from care Poverty gives, so long as a man has in himself the power to earn his daily bread. These Mormons are ready for a Mission at a day's notice. They travel without purse or scrip, and without salary. Where there are heavy Railroad fares, such as those on the UP. RR. and they are poor, the Tithing fund 132 helps them; but they are expected while on their mission to support themselves. There is nothing however to prevent the richer ones from travelling as comfort- ably as they please-at their own expense! Hitherto Elder Staines has paid his own heavy expenses as Emigration Agent.133 I don't know, however, that it is the freedom of Poverty that makes the Mormons so ready to go-for the rich ones seem equally willing. Perhaps it is their freedom from debt: the bur- den that ties so many by the leg! The Mormons are as strict in their discipline in this respect as Quakers. Brother Birch rose next. He said that he knew nothing about the Order of Enoch, but the words had been on his mind all of yesterday and during the night. He fancied that it was an order for establishing a Christian equality among them: it would be welcome to him. `?`Each ward and stake of the church traditionally have a Tithing Fund, donated by church members who want to assist in missionary work. Bishops can draw from this fund when needed to help missionaries. Wtaines served as an agent of the Perpetual Emigrating Fund during its thirty-seven- year existence, until dissolved by the Edmunds-Tucker Act ofcongress in 1887. The Fund helped more than 100,000 persons emigrate to Utah. Arrington, Great Basin Kingdom, 382. 157
