Description the water; and we gathered quantities of cress at a spring the men are hard at work in their gardens little vineyards and orchard plots, and the birds and children are overflowing with joy. The people however are saddened by news of threatening Congressional action against them. I am so sorry. Ever since we came here, the old Patriarch of St George, has been anxious to give us his blessing.136 He is the old man of eighty whom I have so often seen dancing at the parties, dressed in homespun with a yellow neckerchief. He is wonderfully active for his years, thin and wiry, with bright black eyes and curly gray hair. He was at work in his garden this afternoon, and we stopped to speak to him, and much to K's surprise I agreed to go to his house tomorrow and receive his blessing. He came so often to get us to fix a day, and when K. was ill would have come to his bedside. I don't see what the harm is. I am sure it won't make a Mormon of me, and as I feel very kindly to the old man, I mean to go and not hurt his feelings by another refusal. Tuesday Feb. 1 lth. I let the children go off on horseback with- out telling them where I was going, this afternoon, because I felt "cheap", just as if I were going out to have my fortune told. ""Serving as St. George Stake Patriarch was William G. Perkins, charged with the giving of patriarchal blessings to mrorthy members of the church who requested them-usually youths going on missions or couples being married. He joined the church in 1838 in Illinois and served as a bishop there as well as in Salt Lake City in 1849. He was called on a mission to Dixie in 1861.
