Title Gentile Account, page 176
Description society of the East with its practical infidelity that asks "Where is now thy God", I shall look back with tender feelings to St George; "for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the House of God, with the voice of joy and praise; with the multitude that kept holy day."-The fact may not have the meaning for others that I attach to it, but I mean to remember that I felt that it was right and not wrong to worship with the Mormons as with Christians. It is such a comfort to be with people who are in earnest! Which are doing best: they who with a low and mean con- ception of God, are faithfully carrying out what they deem His will; or those "who know their Lord's will, and do it not;" or are not at all sure whether He Is.; Belleview Monday Left St George this morning. A slight sprinkling of snow was upon the ground, fast melting in the morning sunshine as we entered the travelling carriages. Half the population gathered to see us off, and some of the Sisters with whom I have become friends bade me farewell weeping. The tears came to my own eyes as I looked my last from the bluff above the town upon the Happy Valley. What lies before its inhabitants? For me, I have done with the strange idyllic life of the last few months, and must plunge into the World again. Beyond the "Rim of the Basin" they say the snows lie three feet deep along the plains we must traverse. We leave the Spring sunshine to return to Winter. `1;Modern-day Pintura, a day's wagon drive north on the road to Salt Lake City, north of the Washington and Harrisburg junction. 176
