Title Dear Ellen, Page 039
Description The Letters about Sarah Janes and did Mr Toban go that way, I mean to San Bernardino Yon want to know how Hiram came to get Alice but it is such a long story, that I cant tell all the particulars "Suffice it to say" her mother opposed it and opposition did the same for her that it did for me. Her mother has'nt not over it vet ~ -• but feels more reconciled than at first. It was a great trial to her, but every one has to have all they can bear"11 February On the last day of the month, perhaps I can write a little news after all. Joseph Young has married Thalia Grant, and Margaret Whitehead, and I suppose "Brig" will take Jane Carrington befor he goes out to Salmon River, but this is a great secret, now I dont believe you have heard this I think if Hiram had'nt got Alice before the reformation he would have been called upon, bv this time to take one or two more.

You remember Elizabeth Bullock'1" that used to go to school to you, she was married the other day to a man with two wives, and is'nt sixteen yet, but that is not so bad as thirteen. You must excuse this abrubt ending but Catharine has come to go (to] the store with me, and 1 must hurry and put this in the office to night. Ellen, if vou would not take it amiss, I should like to MIIampton C. Godbe states that family tradition says that Mary Arm Angell Young's objection to the marriage with Hiram was based on her becoming ^ iliiri! wife; otherwise she thought highly of Hiram as ;i man. •'"Elizabeth Bullock, born 1812, daughter of James and Mary Bullock, the people who supervised the Spencer children while the father was in England on a mission, married Donald D. Me Arthur in 1857. Frank Es shorn. Pioneers and Prominent Men of Utah (Salt Lake City: Utah Pioneers Book Publishing Company, 1913), 779. 39
