Excerpts from the book's creation:
The following narrative tells its personal unhappy story; yet
will its ethical sink deeply within the hearts of the folk
of this Union who're now referred to as upon to confess
Deseret into this brotherhood of States? the folks
of Utah, reinforced by means of numbers until eventually the pop-
ulation now reaches upward of 77,000 population,
have ready their structure, and should, ere this
work reaches the arms of the reader, have provided
it to Congress, inquiring for admission as a nation. Ere
that admission is granted we conjure each guy
who has admire for humanity and for growth, to
pause over this little checklist of 1 heritage, after which,
multiplying it via tens of hundreds of thousands, say if he can
find it in his middle to fellowship with this sort of ethical
monster as Deseret now could be, and should remain
under the legislation and structure which she has pre-
scribed for herself.
Repulsive as slavery seems to us, we will yet
deem polygamy something extra loathsome and poison-
ous to social and political purity. Half-civilized
States have ceased its perform as harmful to hap-
piness, and as outraging each intuition of the wager-
ter nature inside of each breast ; and as a while rolled
away they left the establishment at the back of as one of many relics
of barbarism which marked the half-developed nation
of guy as a social being. Its final last shadow
now rests upon the Turk, and he, profiting through the ex-
ample of his sultan, is steadily casting it apart, and
soon will stand forth as a monogamist. And hence it
bade reasonable to die out, and girl and society bade reasonable
to come forth clad in a the Aristocracy of ethical purity,
which may still, certainly, appear like the livery of heaven.
Who may have prophesied that during republican Amer-
ica the lie can be given to that promise, and that
the atrocity, secure by means of the robust arm of govern-
ment, may still develop into once again an influence for evil?
Excerpts from the publication:
It used to be the 1st day of June, and Margaret
Fletcher's wedding-day. She used to be to be married
in the night, and all of the afternoon she sat on my own
in her chamber. It used to be a small, low room within the
upper part- tale of the previous farm residence ; however it
was friendly regardless of of its smallness. Its window
looked over the rose-bushes and pinks within the entrance
yard, around the highway, to the meadow and forest
beyond, and to the blue line of the ocean mendacity within the
distance. "Within, all wore that glance of order and
neatness which spoke the purity of the maiden's
tastes. The curtains of dimity on the window and
around the toilet-table have been newly hung and deco-
rated with sprays of myrtle and rose-buds. The
fine linen pillow-casings and good-looking counter-
panes have been exquisitely white; a costume of snowy
Indian garden, a couple of satin slippers, and or
three uncomplicated adornments for the gown lay upon
the mattress. Guiltless of a data of French according to-
fumery, Margaret had strewn rose-leaves over the
bridal dresses and in the course of the room.
She sat on the casement, her head leaned into her
hand, having a look off towards the sea, yet
seeing in simple terms the dream-land of the long run within which
her options have been wandering.
