Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 055
Description the Indians. The Mormons say "troubled with Indians," as we might say "troubled with mosquitoes." No one had been killed for four years back, though cattle had been driven off that year, we were told. The Bishop came riding out to meet us, a handsome, kindly- faced man, mounted on a horse that moved T.`s admiration.31 We were taken to the house of his second wife, a little, one- roomed log-cabin, with a lean-to behind, in which the cooking was done. The living-room was given up to us. Its main glory consisted in a wide chimney-place, on whose hearth a fire of great pine logs blazed, that sent a ruddy glow over the white- washed logs of the wall and the canvas ceiling, and penetrated every corner of the room with delicious light and warmth. There was a substantial bedstead in one corner, and curtains of old-fashioned chintz were tacked from the ceiling around it as if it had been a four-poster, and a neat patchwork counterpane covered the soft feather-bed. A good rag-carpet was on the floor; clean white curtains hung at the windows; and clean white covers, edged with knitted lace, covered the various bracket- 31The bishop at Scipio was Daniel Thompson, but there is little information about him. He may have been the bishop mounted on the fine horse. Daniel Thomp- son was born in Canada in 1824 or 1834 (depending upon which publication cited is consulted) and came to Utah in 1851. He was the first bishop of the Scipio Ward after the organization of the Millard Stake under the leadership of Thomas Callis- ter. He died July 29, 1912. Lorinda Brunson Thompson, born December 22, 1836, in Michigan, is listed as a pioneer of Scipio and from 1870 to I 877 served as first counselor of the Scipio Ward Relief Society. On July 29, 1872, "Sister Lydia Thompson . . . [was] appointed [by the Relief Society J to teach the young girls to crochet, knit, and to do net work." Stella H. Day and Sebrina C.
