Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 073
Description riage before the door. No notice was taken of his arrival, and when he sent a rider in to announce him, expecting Kanosh to come out, Kanosh sent answer, that when he went to see "Big- ham, Bigham sat still in his house; and what was manners for Bigham, was manners for Kanosh." "He's right," said Brigham, and, leaving the carriage, he went in to pay his respects to the chief. Kanosh was perched on the high four-posted bed, sitting cross-legged "plump in the feathers." He wore a heavy, pilot cloth great-coat, buttoned to the chin, a pair of new cowhide boots, and his finest red blanket over all. It was a very warm day in May, and the window was closed. The perspiration streamed down his face, but he sat erect and motionless, feeling that he "must do something for dignity." President Young tried hard to maintain his gravity, but it was completely upset when the valance of the bed was cautiously lifted at one side, and the youngest wife protruded her head, and looked up to survey the general effect of her lord's appearance. We could not see the Kanosh mansion from the road, and after leaving Corn Creek, I do not remember passing any settle- ment that day. I suppose the country had too little water, for I remember that we carried water from Corn Creek for the horses, to the sheltered little hollow in the hills where we "nooned." I know our bottle of milk was frozen solid, and we had to depend on the charity of our neighbors. The Mormons all quaffed, with great apparent relish, a horrible beverage called "composition," made of ginger, cayenne-pepper, cloves, and bayberries ground to powder, sweetened, and mixed with cream, diluted with boil- ing water. This stuff had not frozen, and they drank it cold. 73
