a. Gold dust
a. She worked very hard to prepare a meal that he wouldn’t eat
On a visit of Brigham Young to Moroni: President Young sat down to the table, looked over all of the food, and then said, “Sister Bradley, could I just have a bowl of bread and milk?” For a minute her husband and hired girls held their breath, for they felt they had seen sparks of anger in her eyes; but all she said was, “Quilla, will you go to the pantry and get the top milk from the white pan?” So, the ears of the President were not shocked, and he patted her shoulder and told her she should not bother so much for him, for this tastes were simple. But my, oh my, her husband and those around her, after he had left, were not so fortunate, for there was just one explosion after another from Betsy. She went so far as to say she thought Brother Brigham was the “darnedest” eater she ever saw to eat like that, and she did not think it was very nice of him not to even sample her good food.”
