Title Gentile Account, page 170
Description doors that had been so often opened as I passed by to say a cheering word, or bid "the Lord be with us"; the church where the people of the three settlements, as I had heard, united to pray for him a week ago. And I could see no prospect before these people but one of wretchedness-and it will be in the name of the Law that our President and Congress will bully and terrify these helpless women and innocent little children! Though I had no vote, I felt as if I could not free myself from blood-guiltiness. You will not understand how I have come to pity this people; for you know how hard it was for me to make up my mind to come among them and associate with them, even for the sake of benefiting Fathers health by this climate. I have written to you as a sort of penance for the hard thoughts and contemptuous opinions I have myself instilled into you. When I came home, I stepped softly to the open door and peeped through. Father was lying in a sound sleep, and a bulky figure that I recognised [Brigham Young?] knelt beside a chair, praying. I stole back and rejoined the children on the porch, and we re-entered the house with sufficient noise to make the watcher aware of our presence. He came out into the parlour to give me the good news that Father had slept almost ever since we left. Oh, dear H-[Harriet?], I find myself thinking kindly of this man, too! I have received the promised copy of my blessing, and may as well insert it here. 170
