Excerpt: Under the Prophet in Utah. Chapter 1. In the Days of the Raid About ten o?clock one night in the spring of 1888, I set out secretly, from Salt Lake City, on a nine?mile drive to Bountiful, to meet my father, who was concealed ?on the underground,? among friends; and that night drive, with its haste and its apprehension, was so of a piece with the times, that I can hardly separate it from Under the Prophet in Utah Under the Prophet in Utah 6 them in my memory. We were all being carried along in an uncontrollable sweep of tragic events. In a sort of blindness, like the night, unable to see the nearest fork of the road ahead of us, we were being driven to a future that held we knew not what. I was with my brother Abraham (soon to become an apostle of the Mormon Church), who had himself been in prison and was still in danger of arrest. And there is something typical of those days in the recollection I have of him in the carriage: silent, self?contained, and?when he talked?discussing trivialities in the most calm way in the world. The whole district was picketed with deputy marshals; we did not know that we were not being followed; we had always the sense of evading patrols in an enemy?s country. But this feeling was so old with us that it had become a thing of no regard.
