Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 033
Description Mrs. Sarah said that their family had twice been compelled to move off in former times by the Indians, and often to "go into the Fort," but they felt perfectly safe, since the new San Pete settlements intervened between them and Tab-i-yuna. Now I had heard b f e ore 1 eaving Salt Lake, that Tab-i-yuna had threat- ened war unless black-mail was paid; and from better authority than Mrs. Steerforth had access to, that this had been refused. I had learned, too, that there was an entirely undefended pass between his country and Nephi, but I thought it kindest not to alarm my hostesses with my fears. Both women then went on to tell me of a visit Tab-i-yuna had made Nephi in the summer with his band. We have heard our English friends with country places, com- plain of the gypsies strolling through the country, camping here and there, and pilfering from friend or foe. But their grievance is a bagatelle compared to that the Mormons endure, under the infliction of a visit from a party of Indians. They have the appe- tites of poor relations, and the touchiness of rich ones with money to leave. They come in a swarm; their ponies eat down the golden grain-stacks to their very centres; the Mormon wo- men are tired out baking for the masters, while the squaws hang about the kitchens watching for scraps like unpenned chickens. 66 The women are glad enough, poor creatures," cried pretty Noe, "of a chance to carry water or do any drudge work to repay us for gentle treatment; but the men-the insolent young braves and warriors, who expect the sisters to wait on them, and former possessed the more aggressive nature and served as a lieutenant to his brother Walkara. Kanosh attempted to lead the Pahvants in peaceful ways by emulating the ways of the white man. Sonne, World of Wakara, pp. 8,44. 33
