Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 063
Description that we took a mounted company from the night's halting-place, until we met other horsemen coming out to meet us from the next one. An abrupt descent, into and out of the bed of Chalk Creek, brought us to FILLMORE. I ought to have been impressed by Fillmore, formerly the ter- ritorial capital; I ought to have been reminded of the fact by the big, "red, granite" building we passed where the territorial legis- lature used to assemble; I ought to have some idea of the size and population of the town; its schools, manufactures, and trading facilities. Honestly, this is all I remember: The place was on a rising ground above the plain, and was backed by p eaked mountains. I remember that I was shown the great, red building as we passed it; I remember driving through an orchard that clothed two hillsides, sloping to a rivulet, with three neat cottages embowered among the trees, the homes of Bishop Collister."" I noticed two cockney-looking villas in process of erection; having each its tower, bay-window, bow- window, dormer-window, balcony-verandah, recessed-porch, and pseudo-Gothic roof: features enough to jade the eye without allowing it to rest upon a yard of unbroken surface. I remarked the contrast to the house opposite where we halted, whose win- 360nce again Mrs. Kane changes the name so slightly-only an "a" to an "0" in the name of their host Bishop Thomas Callister. Actually, in 1872 at the time of the Kane family visit, Thomas Callister had been elevated from his position of bishop of Fillmore to stake president of Millard County. Later he became the patriarch of Millard Stake. Jenson, Biogj-aphical Encyclopedia, I :528-29, pays special attention to Thomas Callister's hospitality and his considerate treatment of the Indians. At this time he had three wives-Caroline, Helen, and Mary. See also n. 40. 63
