I With Three Fatherless Children
“I WITH THREE FATHERLESS CHILDREN”
October, 1856, Red Buttes, Martin Company, Elizabeth Horrocks Jackson Kingsford. It will be readily perceived that under such adverse circumstances I had become despondent. I was six or seven thousand miles from my native land, in a wild, rocky, mountain country, in a destitute condition, the ground covered with snow, the waters covered with ice, and I with three fatherless children with scarcely nothing to protect them from the merciless storms. When I had retired to bed that night, being the 27th of Oct., I had a stunning revelation. In my dream, my husband stood by me and said, “Cheer up, Elizabeth , deliverance is at hand.” The dream was fulfilled.
