President Young received his excuses with dignity, instead of "blowing him up," as a more impetuous friend of mine was ready to do. Our car- riage was examined, and pronounced still fit for work; but it took some hours at our next stopping-place to repair the dam- age. The p eo pl e of the village complained that this was a favorite amusement of the coaches near this point, where the Mormon travel coincides with that of the Nevada mining regions. Among the groups gathered around the carriages, many eagerly claimed T.`s recognition. A sturdy yellow-haired man, thrusting both his sinewy brown hands through the carriage window, shook T.`s hand and mine and the children's, all at once, it seemed.
