Title Gentile Account, page 166
Description command, the teamsters reported that the hills were full of Mormons. This was really but that their eyes were opened to see Joseph and the Nauvoo Legion in the spirit." Here Mrs. Perkins broke in, and I wish I could give the odd- ness of the impression given by her precise tones and formal English accent united to the evident sincerity of her language. I have described her room so minutely, because according to her belief it was th e resting place of angels. They don't need 5th Avenue "fixings." She said, "Oh, its wonde$uZ, all they tell him! They give him a great deal of information: you have no idea. He has long talks with them in this very room! He was sick here five months, but he was never lonely, for he would talk with them by the hour. I've sat here with my sewing and gained great information. I could see the light that enveloped them sometimes, and hear their voices (!) but sickness had made his being so fine, that he could see their persons. Sometimes I have said, `Where are they' and he would answer `Right by you in the light of the East window,' or `by the door'. Oh, it's a blessed influence! Why, only last week after the Meeting of the Relief Society Sister Minerva S. and another came in. The other sister said, `Father Perkins, haven't you a word of comfort for me'. `Yes,' he said `Sit right down'; and he gave her a beautiful blessing; and it was granted to me to see them both enveloped in a cloud of light." After this, the Patriarch stood up and blessed me. As I am to have a copy of my blessing, I won't trust my imperfect recollec- tion of it.
