Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 046
Description Thy Son Jesus Christ, to bless and sanctify this water to the souls of all who drink of it, that may do it in remembrance of the blood of Thy Son, which was shed for them, that they may wit- ness unto Thee, Oh God the Eternal Father, that they do always remember Him, that they may have His Spirit to be with them. Amen ! " While the water was being handed round, another hymn was sung; one of a set of beautiful fugues of which the Mormons are particularly fond. Then the services were concluded with a bless- ing, and the congregation dispersed, interchanging greetings at the door. I spent the afternoon with my two hostesses; but T. was taken to inspect a monster Sunday-school, where he found the pupils well drilled in the Bible and the Book of Mormon. The latter is a production which sounds not unlike the historical books of the Old Testament in the ears of those who "read their chapters" in the mechanical way in which an ignorant Catholic tells his beads. While I talked with the Steerforth women over the glowing fire, I was idly wondering to which of the wives the different children belonged. The wee nursling and Noe were easily as- signed to the little mother, but I puzzled myself vainly over the others who gathered about the pair with precisely the same caressing familiarity that we are accustomed to associate with the true filial instinct one and undivided. When I mentioned my difficulty they smiled, and asked me to point out those whom I thought belonged to each. I did so; and they laughed outright, telling me that the seven children belonged to the little mother.
