Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 064
Description dows were a fleur de tete, and whose eaves projected scarcely six inches beyond the dull, unpointed brick walls; the only attempt at ornament being given by the impossible landscapes on the painted window-shades. Some Indians lounged against the fence, kicking up the dust lazily. I am ashamed to confess that I remember no more of the ex- ternal appearance of Fillmore; and there exists no "Murray" for Utah to make up travelers' memories for them.37 The mistress of the mansion showed herself in the door-way; a large, loosely-built matron, "standing with reluctant feet" on the uninteresting border-land between middle and old age. She rather made way for us to enter, than entreated us. We found her parlor in keeping with the exterior of the house, and heated almost to suffocation by a large sheet-iron stove. She sat with us a few moments, lamenting that her children were all married and gone; lamenting the trouble of housekeeping un- aided; and by inference lamenting the trouble of entertaining me. I consoled with her most sincerely, regretting her latest trouble perhaps even more than she did. After she withdrew to prepare our meal, a son of hers came in to call on T. This gentleman had frequently acted as sub Indian agent, and a quintette of Indians, emboldened by his presence, followed him into the room. When Mrs. Q. called US to supper, these gentry rose to accompany us. I looked helplessly at her. She said a few words in their dialect, which made them 371t is strange that Mrs. Kane remembered so little of this, Utah's territorial capital from 185 I to 1856.
