Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 116
Description "It was a mercy it was this wind; because, if our stove drew, the fire in the sitting-room on the other side of the house would have smoked, and aZ2 the party had to sit there." As it was, we were very comfortable beside the great fire that roared up the sitting-room chimney; and the children were amused by the draught that lifted the heavy cocoa-matting on the floor in waves. Whoever entered from outside came in with a surprising suddenness, and the door slammed to indecorously behind the indigenous visitor before he could get his breath to gasp out, "A welcome to Kannarra! " Our hostess was almost bent double with sciatica, and ap- peared to be one of the saints who feel "Earth is a desert drear, Heaven is my home." Not that she did not set before us a bountiful meal, well cooked, and seasoned with hospitable words; but she seemed to think she had not yet found her abiding city, and that it was hardly worth while for her to set her affections on any place here below, -certainly not on Kannarra. Her husband's father had been one of the earliest of Joseph Smith's followers, and father and son had adhered to the faith with the tenacity of mastiffs. Every line of Roundhed's weather-beaten face showed courage and fidelity."' 57The name Roundhed is a poor disguise for the name of Lorenzo W. Roundy, the bishop of Kanarra. Roundy had been in the Little Muddy Mission in Nevada before coming to Kanarra. The husband's father spoken of by Mrs. Kane was Shad- rack Roundy, an early convert of the church from the Fayette period. He became a personal bodyguard to Joseph Smith in Nauvoo. Jenson, Biographical Encyclopedia, 1:642-43. Lorenzo W. Roundy's role in opening Mormon colonization into Arizona is dis- cussed in Charles S. Peterson, Take Up Your Mission, Mormon Colonizing Along 116
