The letters provide interesting descriptions of Mormon social customs, Mormon-Indian relationships, and insightful observations of the practice of polygamy among the Mormons.

Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 040
Description showed the children the scars on his back and legs and feet, where they used to try his powers of endurance by playfully branding him with a burning stick. No wonder that Lehi used to hide under the bed at Mrs. Steerforth's whenever an Indian came near, as the dog who has once been shot hides from a man approaching with a gun. Another of Wah-ker's infant captives was adopted into Presi- dent Young's family. She seemed to me a very respectable and sedate, good woman, but was said to entertain a "morbid" hor- ror of Indians. I was told that when she was sold, a young brother of hers, remaining on hand after the rest of the captives were disposed of, was thrown alive into the Boiling Spring, a mile north of Salt Lake City. President Young himself, who ought to know, I suppose, contradicts this story. He does not think it was her brother, in the first place, and in the second, the lad was killed before he was thrown in! I found the Mormons disposed to justify and excuse the In- . dians more than I thought the hideous creatures deserved; and, if Wah-ker didn't boil that boy alive, he committed enough atrocities to justify the terror in which his name was held among the subordinate Utes. Mrs. Mary's Indian stories made me nervous; and on retiring to rest, after extinguishing my candle, I observed, with small satisfaction, that I was to see the Pi-ute fires distinctly through the window at the foot of my bed if I should wake at night. The thought itself kept me watching them. I fancied I could see them brighten from time to time, and felt sure that if I fell asleep I would dream of Robinson Crusoe's cannibals dancing round their flaming fagots. 4O
