A correspondent describes his travels from Ogden to Salt Lake City and marvels at the clearness of the atmosphere in Utah, which makes distances look deceptively small. He also remarks on the low-lying level of dust in the Salt Lake Valley and describes the setting of the towns that populate the valley. He describes the homes and streets in Salt Lake City, Brigham Young’s home, the Tabernacle, and the irrigation system, which has made the country “[blossom] like the rose.” The author plans to ask Brigham Young for permission to use his observatory. The city is full of co-operative stores bearing the sign “Holiness to the Lord.” The women are plain and homely; the men, animal, stolid, and ignorant. The people dress very plainly and obey the prophet exactly.
