We left Provo that afternoon, in spite of President Young's evident indisposition. I asked a lady of the party whether some one would not urge his staying a day longer to recruit his strength. "No," she replied, stiffly; "he will be inspired to do right. If he ought to go, we will know it by his going; if not, he will be inspired to stay.
