Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 086
Description Scripture, often repeated on the pilgrimage and in the early years of the settlement, till it grew to be remembered as the motto of her life was, "All this way hath the Lord thy God led thee, to humble thee and prove thee, and to give thee peace in thy latter end." Her husband only remembered one remark escaping her that looked like dissatisfaction with her lot. It was when they reached the promised land and looked down on the Salt Lake Valley. There were about six small cottonwood trees then in all the valley, and Helen looked at them a long time. Then said she to her husband, "Father, we have come fifteen hundred miles in wagons, and a thousand miles through the sage-brush; and les I'd get into the wagon tomorrow, and travel a thousand m farther, to see shade-trees instead of these rocks and sands." She was so fond of "growing things," her husband said, t she languished in health in the confinement for safety, and lat he petitioned the brethren to let him establish himself outside it,- on the hill where the Lion House now stands. It was thought a foolhardy thing to do, and objection was made; but with Helen's consent, he solemnly took the responsibility upon him- self, and they placed their dwelling beside City Creek. Helen had brought a whole bushel of fruit-tree kernels, and other seeds. "Now, mother," he told her, "I'll set every one of these out, and you'll soon have shade-trees enough." Helen took the greatest pride in her little plantation. The trees were about a foot high, when the grasshoppers ate them down to the roots. They ate everything in the garden with entire impartiality. 86
