They had left Salt Lake City the day before, and now rolled slowly off to precede us to Provo. Under President Young's direction, his party were told off to their respective vehicles, and bade farewell to the friends who had accompanied them so far. Our carriage drew up first; and I was sorry to see that it was Mr. Young's own luxurious city coach, whose springs he had devoted to be shattered over the lava blocks in my invalid husband's service. Inside, it was so piled up with cushions and fur robes, that it was almost impossible to feel a jolt. Its handsomely--varnished outside panels were protected by clean white canvas. What a red-stained, shabby covering reached the end of our seven- hundred-miles' journey ! Behind us followed a carriage containing one of Mr. Young's married daughters, a pale bronchitic-looking young lady, travel- ing for her health under the care of a Mrs. Young, who was returning to her home in a southern settlement? Beside them rode Mrs. Young's fair-haired little daughter, Mabel, a chorus she and my boys sang from their respective we toiled on our journey afterwards.

Other wives visited, but did not move to St. George until after 1873. Susa Young Gates, The Life Story of Brigham Young (New York: Macmillan Company, Ig3o), p. 352. 6
