Source Locations: Our Pioneer Heritage, vol. 20, p. 200-201-- "My father and mother were owners and proprietors of the Angel Inn at Mottram, England. I was just beginning my teen years when the Mormon missionaries came to the Inn for lodging and food. On observing that we had a large reception room, they asked if they might hold a meeting there. My mother really ran the business, as my father had recently become blind. He had been ill and went to the doctor. The doctor decided his blood was out of order and the less he had of it the better, so he cupped him, in other words opened up a vein and let some of the blood out, apparently too much, as he could scarcely find his way home and was never able to see again. My mother told the missionaries that as long as they were orderly and did nothing disreputable they might hold their meeting there. She also made it plain that she and all of her family were good Christian people well satisfied with their present church and would not be interested in their church in any way. "The missionaries held their meeting and as our family had their quarters at the Inn, we could not help but hear the singing. My mother was so enchanted by the opening song that she crept down the hall where she could hear better. After the singing, one of the missionaries gave the prayer. She could stand it no longer and returned to tell father and us children that she had never heard such singing or such a sincere prayer. From then on the missionaries were constant visitors and all of our family were baptized into the Church in 1848.
