Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 130
Description you would ask her. She was married twice in the States before she joined." At this there was a titter, I think, at the fair ingenue's expense, but perhaps my own! At prayers that night I was struck by the unusual fervency of the petitions for the Lamanites (Indians), "that they might see visions and dream dreams that would lead them to embrace the truth." I presume it was owing to a report two brothers from "Toc- quer" brought of the doings of the prophet in the White Pine District.`" TO ST. GEORGE Going into Bellevue kitchen in the morning, I surprised Presi- dent Young aiding our rheumatic Philadelphia D'Orsay to com- plete his regalia. It was amusing to see John'* accepting every Civil Right "these yer Mormons" admitted him to as tributes to his monogamic superiority. Never a word of those profuse apol- ogies which the natural politeness of colored people under ordi- nary circumstances would have prompted, on receiving such a courtesy from a white man seventy years of age, passed his lips. 63The prophet here referred to was probably Tavibo, father of the more famous Piute Indian, Wovoka, founder of the Ghost Dance Religion during the last quarter of the nineteenth century. There has been very little written about Tavibo, but several books deal with Wovoka and the Ghost Dance. See Paul Bailey, Wovoka, the Indian Messiah (Los Angeles: Westernlore Press, 1957) ; James Mooney, The Ghost Dance Religion and the Sioux Outbreak of ~890 (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1905), chapter one. 64This is John, the Kane's black servant.
