Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 017
Description a lady was his third spouse. Third, vertically, I mean, as L. M. used to say of Bishop H.`s matrimonial series. I did not think that Mrs. Angus seemed likely to urge a second wife upon her lord; since, for anything that I could see, he throve financially as well as if he had fulfilled all the conditions of saintship. He was one of the few Irish Mormons whom I met (indeed, Scotch- Irish at that). His house was a large adobe which had grown with his prosperity, for it had been added to three times, and included a flourishing millinery establishment conducted by Mrs. Angus. It had two well-furnished parlors; one in particular with a conspicuously costly carpet. Fires were blazing in both; but I think quite as comfortable a room was a long kitchen where we ate our meals. Like all Mormon living-rooms, it was virtuously clean and well-aired. Trailing plants climbed round the windows, and as the sunshine poured in, a canary tried to outsing the tones of Brigham Young's grace. He held his own, however; and would not have its cage covered, maintaining that the bird's effusion of thankfulness might be as acceptable to the Creator as his own. At every one of the places we stayed on this journey, we had prayers immediately after the dinner-supper, and prayers again before breakfast. No one was excused; wives, daughters, hired men and women, all shuffled in. The Mormons do not read strand-and was the father of thirty-one children. He was a farmer, mayor of Payson and involved in banking and other business pursuits. Elizabeth Kane's "Mrs. Angus" is Elizabeth Clark Haws, the only wife of Joseph Tanner at this time.
