"Only two pennyweights of silver to the ton of lead!" To my ignorance it seemed that the more silver there was, the better; but I found that he meant to express the complete separation of the metals effected by the new process. He wished to prove this on the spot by an inter- esting test, but our engine was hooting its impatience, and we were forced to resume our seats in the train. Mine was beside a sweet-looking elderly lady who, with her widowed sister, was to leave us at the next station to attend the meeting of a FEMALE RELIEF SOCIETY. She introduced the subject of polygamy abruptly, telling me, among other things, that to her it had been long known as revelation, "Brother Joseph" having re- vealed it to her thirty-six years ago. (Yet the Mormon publica- tions denied polygamy as late as 1852.) She had proved its wis- dom since! I learned that this woman had been one of Smith's own wives; the first "plural wife" of the sect ! Since his death she had espoused another saintly personage.3 A few minutes' ride from Sandy Station brought us opposite 31t is difficult to determine who this woman might be. She may have been Zina Diantha Huntington Jacobs Young, who became a plural wife of Joseph Smith and then in 1846 married Brigham Young. In 1872 she was a counselor to Eliza R. Snow, president of the Women's Relief Society, who at this very time was en route to the Holy Land.
