Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 119
Description went to the little meeting-house, whence the boys returned awed by their recollections of the hideous painted faces of some Pi- edes, who had flattened their noses against the window-panes of the building, back of where they sat. "Enough," Evy declared, "to give him nightmares for a year." As for me, I had found my first breath of keen air more than enough, and had withdrawn to the fireside, where I was entertained for the remainder of the day by one of the informal audiences I have spoken of. One brother was "breathing fire and slaughter" against the Pi-edes; and the bishop's exhortations having failed to inspire charity in his breast, he was brought to Brother Brigham to be "counselled" into submissiveness. I was told that he was a "rash man, " venturing out alone from the settlements, and had been repeatedly chased by the Indians; and that "it was his brothers who got into the bad scrape." "What scrape was that?" I inquired, desiring to hear some adventure with a triumphant end. "Well, both his brothers and the wife of one of them were pursued and killed. They were not scalped; but they were stripped and their wagon robbedY8 "By the Navajoes, I suppose?" "Why, no," said my informant, sinking his voice, and looking cautiously at the bereaved brother; "they were Pi-edes; and un- fortunately he thinks he recognizes one of his sister's earrings 58This is probably a reference to the killing of Joseph and Robert Berry (also spelled Berrie) and Robert's wife Isabella who were on their way to Long Valley. Near Short Creek on the Arizona Strip, they were attacked by Indians on April 2, 1866, and killed. Gottfredson, Indian Depredations in Utah, pp. 181-83; C.
