Mormon or not, Shefford, I'll admit this: a good man, strong with his body, and learned in ways with his hands, with some knowledge of medicine, can better the condition of these Indians. But just as soon as he begins to preach his religion, then his influence wanes. That's natural. These heathen have their ideals, their gods." "Which the white man should leave them!" replied Shefford, feelingly.

Our journey was one full of events interesting to us, but not of sufficient importance to relate to the public. While on the journey I sold most of my cattle on time to an old man, a friend of Stewart's took his notes, and let him keep them, which, as the sequel shows, was fortunate for me. We arrived at Far West, the then headquarters of the Mormon Church, about the 4th day of June, 1838.

That the Mormon Battalion did not always rigidly obey orders is shown in another story detailed by Roberts: "While the Battalion was at Santa Fe, Colonel Cooke ordered Lot Smith to guard a Mexican corral, and, having a company of United States cavalry camped by, he told Lot if the men came to steal the poles to bayonet them.

"And was executed for it?" asked Christine, while she shuddered with horror." "No," said Edward; "he was promoted by the Mormon priesthood to a higher place in the church, as one who had done a praiseworthy deed." "Murder a praiseworthy deed!" they cried in astonishment and indignation. "How could that be?" "They have a doctrine that they call 'blood-atonement," replied Edward.

Her drooping head straightened, and the large eyes, larger now and darker, met Venters's with a clear, steadfast gaze in which he read truth. It verified his own conviction. "Never knew? That's strange! Are you a Mormon?" "No." "Is Oldring a Mormon?" "No." "Do you care for him?" "Yes. I hate his men his life sometimes I almost hate him!"
