Brigham Young At Home
1940. Illustrated with Photographs. Brigham Young at Home is a valuable addition to the history of the home life of pioneer days. Reared in the famous Beehive House, Mrs. Spencer has carried with her through life the patient, loving influence of her parents. As she goes back in memory to the old home, she revives the scenes and varied events which filled her childhood days. She tells of the amusements of the children and the tender solicitation that President Young always had for the members of his family. Simple and straightforward, he was generous and patient, and the day was always begun with a solemn prayer to God. Nature gave to President Young a resolute will, a keen intellect, and a forceful individuality, with which he met the problems of Church and State. In the home, he was happy when he could lay aside the business of his high office, and take part in the play and mirth of the children.
