Title Genteel Gentile, page 071
Description was vain to the Mormons; and the huge masses they had designed to roil or blow from the cliffs eight hundred feet down upon our devoted heads, [could] have proved equally available to their own destruction." Tracy, Utah War, p. 23. Farther along the trail, at the eastern base of Big Mountain, the Mormons had erected breastworks to intercept the invaders should the Echo Canyon defenses be breached. See Tracy, Utah War, p. 25 and Stout, Diary of Hosea Stout, 2jd-!O, 644 n. 14. running sometimes forwards, then backward turning upon its own course. Here some Indian men came up on horseback- in nature's regalia, no article of clothing but a collar of some skin, & rode by my side. I am used to Indians-so rode along quietly-one said "governor-squaw." Alfred's carriage was in sight & he pointed to make his meaning clear. So I nodded, & we rode along quietly his eyes full of questions, which his tongue could not form. I thought if some of my friends possessed one of the famous mirrors, which the enchanters of former days used for calling images of distant or departed friends, they would see just then an unusual picture, if they looked at me. I rode a nice little pony, with a mane & tail all torn & uneven from winter wanderings among sage bushes & Echo Canyon. Albert Traty sketch 71
