The Coldest & longest storm we have had since we came to this region. I trust Alfred has not set out to come back here. It is nearly time for him to do so-& hp must pass through such canons, & over such mountains, as we have not yet done on our journey hither. Our PreSeil[" S'le fof a home is ROt SO agreeable AS the last? It is very beautiful in appearance-but there we were in a val- ]ey screencd from all extreme cold & winds by high bluffs & mountains all around us. We left the valley partly because, if the Mormons should commence active hostilities in the spring, as we anticipated, the bluffs so near us, would be too good a position for our enemy, who could fire down upon us at ease. Here, we are far away from any such danger -but really the danger of discomfort is decided. We have been here about a month, & only during two days of that time have we been free from wind, high wind-hot last week-very cold this -however-the early morng till about 10 A.M. is comparatively still, & I go out sometimes then to feast my eyes & soul on lovely & grand scenery. We have both. I have a great deal to say, but little to write-which you can well understand. 1 write very long letters to Boston, but they are not of news. My mother, sisters &. I have a course of reading together, which is one thing we write about. We agreed upon that, & upon some other united occupations, that we might not feel so separated, even when letters might fail to come. Again I say, I have had but one letter from you since last 52
