Title Gentile Account, page 178
Description women, standing with me on the hill above the Temple Enclosure and looking down on the fair city sleeping in the sunshine, with the blue lake sparkling in the distance, said with exultation "Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth is Mount Zion; on the sides of the North, the City of the Great King! God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved. God shall help her and that right early!" I could understand her feeling, could understand too the glance of her eye to the Fort under whose guns the city lieslq9 as completely as ever Jerusalem lay at the mercy of the castle of Antonia. But its wealth has spoiled it for me. Vulgar Oroide (Oroide an alloy, imitation gold, used in making cheap jewelry [author of notation unknown]) Mormons emulating vulgar nouveaux- riches St. Louis and Chicago men having nothing characteris- tic about them. The passing traveller who halts a few days in Salt Lake City, and gives his dictum on the Mormons, foresees their religious decay as clearly as I can do from what he sees of their growth in material prosperity and worldly spirit. The ardent, the sincere, the unworldly and self-sacrificing who are the strength and glory of any religion in its first begin- ning are not found among those who receive the profits of their labors. They are always in the forefront of the battle. The Mormon battle-ground is no longer in the Salt Lake Valley. I found the best men and women, the most earnest in their belief, the most self-d enying and "primitive Christian" in their `j"Fort Douglas is the U.S. Army installation that overlooked Salt Lake City from the eastern foothills. 178
