Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 041
Description Instead, I figured at two home-funerals as chief mourner! It was a relief to wake to the peacefulness of a Sunday morning, with bright sunshine streaming through the window. After breakfast I attended a Mormon meeting for the first time. I wondered whether Mr. Steerforth would walk to church alone, or between his wives. But they both accompanied me, while their joint husband (!) formed one of a group who escorted `I'. So there was no test of preference like that which mocks the tomb of Lord Burleigh."s We soon mingled with a stream of neatly-dressed people all going the same way; my children undevoutly rambling from one side of the road to the other. They called my attention to a tamed magpie, whose remarks the little Steerforths declared to be worth hearing. But we passed in vain; he would not show off. I had not known that the magpie was a native of Utah; I had supposed him a pecu- liarly English bird. We passed a he ap of smouldering brands-sticks and ragged . strips of cedar-bark. I had fancied that a fire of "cedarn-wood" would give out a scent like sandal-wood. The perfume resem- bled that of the fustiest of greasy woolen clothes, and was strong enough to poison the sweet air for quite a distance.

However, before coming into this potition, he had served the two preceding Tudor monarchs, Edward VI and Mary. His ability to serve faithfully both a Catholic monarch (Mary) and Elizabeth was a remarkable feat. Perhaps this is the matter Elizabeth Kane has in mind. Dictionary of National Biography, S.V. "Cecil, William."
