Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 126
Description Dawes's hospitality provide for all the travelers. The decision was to halt at Bellevue, and the female suffrage, I will not deny, was in favor of a late start next morning. BELLEVUE I had an impression that Mr. Dawes's farmhouse was a mere summer shelter for the family, to which they retired when the heat made their town house at St. George unbearable; and at best expected it to turn out an untenanted, barn-like place." I forgot that a Mormon could have as many housekeepers as he had houses. It was dark when we drew up at the kitchen door of the farm-house. A ruddy light streamed out, and our new hostess stood on the threshold to greet us. The kitchen was as neat as a parlor, and the aromatic scent of hot coffee came pleas- antly to our hungry senses -the proof that we were expected. L Another Mrs. Dawes, as trim, pretty, and youthful-looking as the one who received us, came from the stove, where she was superintending some delicate cookery, and the two conducted us to our rooms. I had my choice of two equally comfortable ones, and found 61Bellevue (also Belle View) is present Pintura. Mr. Dawes may be Jacob Gates who was bishop of Bellevue. In 1874 when Brigham Young's party stopped with Bishop Gates, John D. Lee said of him: "We all put up with Elder Gates, who had good accommodations, warm barn for horses etc." Cleland and Brooks, A Mormon Chronicle, 2:337-38. According to Jenson, Biographical Encyclopedia, I: 198, Gates also resided in St. George. He was elected to the legislature from Washington County as well as Kane County-indicating he resided at two places at least.
