Title Gentile Account, page 177
Description And today as I turn my back upon my holiday rest, the first letters from the East for many weeks are handed me. I read them in the carriage. They tell me of Deaths among my friends; they remind me of business cares and worries, and urge my hastening back from "those dreadful Mormons." Farewell, Arcadia! Or Pandemonium-Which? On my return to Salt Lake City I spent a week or so at the Lion House,"@ a step which I took as a public testimony to the little circle of those to whom my name is known, that my opinion of the Mormon women had so changed during the winter that I was willing to eat salt with them. It would probably be more interesting to my father should I describe that household than any other in Utah. I am the only "Gentile woman" to whom every door within the walls was set freely open, and who was invited to the most familiar inter- course with Brigham Young's wives and children. Yet that very fact seals my lips. I was not there as a newspaper correspon- dent, but as the wife of an honored and trusted friend of the head of the household. The members of that family have already suffered enough from the prying curiosity of strangers. Suffice it to say that I met none but good and kindly women there, as in the other Utah homes where I became familiar. Nor have I anything to say of Salt Lake City, although it is the pride of Mormondom. One of the best of the Mormon "Vart of Brigham Young's Salt Lake City home, located west of his Beehive House at East South Temple. Roth buildings were restored to 1877 vintage by the ,Mormon church and are now open to the public. 177
