Title Dear Ellen, Page 024
Description Dear Ellen flirting with the officers just out of spite, thinking they could resist all temtation and flattery, but they missed the mark in doing so, and repented when too late. We hear very bad stones about them, though I presume they are not all true, I hope not at least. I should like to hear all you know about them, Mrs Wheclock especialy, as she was very intimate at our house, also Miss Potter. I was looking over the Western Standard, the other day, and read an account of your May Pic-Nic. I congratulate Loisr* on being the queen, I suppose she is quite a belle. Mr M. Tanner was telling the girls (Hirams sisters) last summer about a ride on horse back with her in which she was thrown and hurt badly. He was married the next day after he came back the last time, to Miss Jane Mount, quite a pretty girl, who looks very much as Mary Ann Knowlton used to I do not know whether Bro Eldridge has got in yet or not, he certainly has not been to see me, however I expect he will not call very soon for his family live at Cotton Wood, and he would probably have a good deal of business to attend to at first, so I shall have to wait as patiently as possible. The man that brought your letter to me, called early in the morning, just as I was sitting down to breakfast, his Countenance looked familiar, but I had'nt the courage to ask his name. I am sorry now that I did not, but I was so pleased to get a letter from you, and thinking that would give all particulars, I made no inquiries. Ellen, you got married in the wrong time of the year, you should have waited till fall, but perhaps is {it} is'nt as warm weather there as it is here; and on Monday too; but I suppose you thought I did so well you would do as near the same •'Lois Barnes Pratt, Ellen's younger sister. Western Standard (San Francisco), May 17, 1856. "Master John Hunt," representing the boys of San Bernardino County Union School, toasted the queen that day, an element in a romance that culminated in the marriage of John and Lois, July 4, 1857. See letter of Ellen Pratt McGary, August 6, 1857, fourth paragraph. Pauline Uclall Smith, Captain Jefferson Hunt of the Mormon Battalion (Salt Lake City: Nicholas G. Morgan, Sr., Foundation, 1958). 24
