Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 068
Description I stayed at one of Bishop Collister's cottages in the orchard the next time I visited Fillmore. The Mormons say that frost after frost killed the peach-trees and cut the apple-trees to the ground when they first made a settlement in the place, and did so year after year. Any reason able people would have given up trying to produce fruit; but the Mormons are quite unreasonable in matters of faith, and some brother or sister had had it revealed, or had a vision, or "felt to prophesy" that it would yet be noted among the towns of Utah for its fruits. They persevered, and so I know what per- fectly delicious apples they now harvest. Our bedroom at Fill- more had a great basket full of them, golden and rosy, sweet and tart, pippins and Spitzenbergs; with which we amused our palates between meals, and filled every nook in the carriage next day. My new hostess was, I believe, a daughter of my first one. What a pretty creature she was ! Tall and graceful; with the loveliest of dark eyes! And she had three sweet little children- "three left out of seven." Her husband had lost eleven out of his twenty-eight children. Wife Mary had borne him seven, Caro- line twelve, and Helen nine.4o These numbers are not unusual in Utah, nor were they among the Puritans, our ancestors.
