Description prayers. He could hardly walk an eighth of a mile with the aid of his crutches when we arrived; yet just before this illness seized him he enjoyed a mountain climb of two miles, return- ing scarcely more fatigued that I was. I did not tell you, hoping to give you a delightful surprise when you should see him walking without even a cane. Think! He had never done that since Harrisonburg: June `62.145 During this sharp sickness, it was a consolation to me to hear Elder S. confess to the same feelings I had myself in praying. (Elder S.[Staines]-is the deformed gentleman whose earnest simplicity and sincerity have struck me, as much as his kind- liness has done the children. He is the only Mormon man with whom I have more than a passing acquaintance.) I had felt that K's restoration to health was in answer to my prayers, and that he should die now, in this agony of pain seemed as if it would shake my faith. Poor Elder S. was even worse off than myself, because he believed that he had received the assurance of the Spirit that K. was to return home cured. His room is over ours, and I have always heard the tones of his voice praying for a long time at night, but when K. was passing through the crisis, I could distinguish the murmuring sound nearly all night. His distress was so great that he had to be banished f rom the sick room, and I pitied his wretched looks I'sA Civil War battle in \`irginia where Kane was seriously wounded. A note added to the diary by E. Kent Kane states "He [Thomas L. Kane] was shot in the leg below the knee and captured there But while lying on or under a wagon one vvho hated him smashed his ribs with a sharp rifle butt. TLK said he knew who did it but would not tell. I think it was a Virginian blood cousin." Kane family historian Sybil Kane (I 992) states that the injury was caused by a F'irginia cousin whose brother had been killed in the battle. 173
