Washakie Sunday School; Washakie, Utah Territory

[. . .]

The next day being Sunday, at 10 o’clock, we all went to Sunday School, which was conducted by Elder Moroni Ward. A few white children were in attendance, but the school mostly consisted of, not only red children of small growth, but full grown men and women, all seeming to learn as fast as possible.1 I listened to each class separately, and, while I was deeply struck with surprise with the progress of the scholars, I felt no less admiration for the untiring perseverance of the teachers. By request I addressed the school for a short time, Bishop [Isaac] Zundel interpreting to those that did not fully understand.
