Charlotte Joslyn Burnham, wife of Luther Sylvester and Mother of 12 children writes as follows: " I am now 78 (1899) with poor eyesight and trembling hand. I have one son in California, Arthur 22 and the rest of my children live near me. My children are all Republicans and non-church-men. My son in California is a fruit raiser and the rest are farmers and dairymen. I tried Mormonism and found nothing in that."
