Transcription of Letter to Lilly Bell from Elva Black

Contributor: modestograves Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

April 28th 1897 Mrs. Lilly Hinckley: Wilford, Idaho Dear Lilly; I received your most welcome letter yesterday, and was indeed very pleased to hear from you once more. You said you were homesick to see me. I do not think you are more so than I am to see you. I was just wishing for a letter from you the other day. I don't think it is fair. I have wanted to come down to see you all winter and especially when you were sick, but I could not. It is all I can do to get to mother's once in a while. I was very sorry to hear of your losing your darling baby, but was thankful that you were spared. It seems just too cruel to lose them, after suffering what a mother has to, to get them, but I guess the Lord knows what is best for us. You asked me if we were in our new house, no we are not, but we will be by the last of July, if possible. I would like to have you come up, oh, so, well. There is going to be conference at Wilford in June. You had better come up to conference and stay a few days with me, and as much longer as we can get you to stay. I was sorry to hear that Mary is so miserable, it was quite a joke about her having the dropsy. Well Dear Lilly I will tell you good night. To be concluded, April 30th, Good Morning Mr. and Mrs. H. How are you today, you said you were working in the garden. You did not say whether you were picking peas, beans or cucumbers, but I suppose it was one of the three, wish I was there to help you eat them. I was pleased to hear that Sarah is so steady. I wish her fellow was worthy of her. Do you think they will get married before he goes on his mission? You asked me when I thought Nute would get married. I do not know, he won't tell me. I tell him it is the best thing he can do; but he says he is not able yet. I wish he would, the sooner he gets married, the better it will be for mother. She has to work too hard. Bertie and Martha goes to school and she has to do her washing and everything. Only what Martha can do mornings and evenings, you spoke of me still having poor health. You wouldn't think it was very poor if you could see me. I am just as fat as a pig, I never was so fat before. I feel quite well, excepting my back it nearly kills me, but I never felt better before in all other respects. Will is busy plowing, we have most of our garden in, but not grain as yet. Give my love to Sarah, Min and all inquiring Friends. I would like to see Aunt Mary, but do not know when I can come down. I guess you think this letter is long enough, and hard enough to read. So I think I will close. Will joins me in sending love to you and Silas. I would talk you to sleep if I could see you, hoping to hear from you soon. I remain your affectionate Sister, Elva Black

2/9/09 #12 Blenheim dr Aubery Rd Leeds England Mrs Lilly Hinckley and children-- Dear family --- I received your letter yesterday and the papers today. The first news from Rexburg other than family news since leaving. Two months yesterday since I landed in England. The weather here is (cold) snowing just a little today. Sunday I went to Bradford to sunday school. And to Huddersfield in the afternoon to S.S. and meeting in the evening. Huddersfield has 100,000 people. There is about 20 saints there. One of the saints in Huddersfield is blind but she can go all over that city alone and tell any time where she is. Yesterday is the first time that I have had a chance to talk gospel while tracting. Though the people have treated me very kindly they haven't cared to talk religion. I stood 1 1/2 hours at two doors one was a church of England lady not very well upon the bible. The other lady had read her bible. The church of England believe that if their children are not sprinkled and happen to die without this baptism that they go to hell a place of actual fire where they burn forever and ever. They believe that God the father and Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are all in one nowhere and yet ever where present. I told them that Jesus said, "Suffer little children and forbid them not to come unto me for of such is the kingdom of heaven." That children could break no law therefore couldn't sin and consequently belonged to God's kingdom. That God would be unjust to punish children that couldn't sin. I told them that we believed heaven to be a place of happiness and progression where we would know our friends and live together. That wicked people would not dwell with angels. But that each would find in heaven the people that they were prepared to live with. I called their attention to the baptism of Jesus, when he was baptized the heavens were opened and the spirit descended.

2/22/10 50 Wesley St. Morley Yorkshire Eng Mrs. Silas Hinckley Rexburg Idaho Dear wife -- First the financial. I think that Hyrum Ricks and Eli have go their heads together and figured out just what Eli had to pay to hold the place. He has paid all the papers required at present. It was 2.50 and interest to be paid last fall. He paid 124 last fall and you say he has put 263 in the bank now. As near as I can tell that is all the notes require at present. Then there will be the interest this fall and the balance is due one year from next June. If he has done all the papers call for you can't ask him for any more, though he has been long time doing it and Promised to do more. Well I am glad we know our fate in that regard. We will go right on just the same as ever until that money is made then I think we can borrow enough to complete the job. If now we have failed the law. I will need about 250 and you the same besides the interest. The reason I didn't thank the boys for the sheep I never thought any more about it after reading the letter. Tell them we will go in cahoots and use the profits to increase the herd. They can lease a summer range and buy hay to feed next winter. We won't take them out on the desert the snow might get too deep. They can get four mice and a doll shoe to haul hay with. We will use the hairs out of the paintbrush for logs to build a barn with. Stell can be the cook. Lorin the hired man and Dean the school boy. Say boys who curled your hair. You can't be so big after all. But then you must be growing. But be careful the mice don't kick you. You had better throw them down to put the harness on. They might be so tall you will have to stand on the manger. If you ride them in the stall stoop your head down.

5/17/09 3 Hilberoyd Rd Battey Yorkshire Eng Mrs. Lilly Hinckley Dear wife -- We have been to conference three days, came home tonight. We had a group picture taken today, 31 in it. Pres Penrose and wife with the bunch. I will get one. Today a number of us was appointed to new branches. I go to Morley, 4 miles from here with Elder Brewer. There isn't a branch there. I haven't been there yet. Will tell you more about it next letter. I move tomorrow. I don't feel blue about being moved like I did last time. Will have many changes in two years. I don't think I will get another place to stay as good as this. But they say they have a good place at Morley. The Leeds saints at conference were begging me to come to Leeds and stay a few days. When I get to Morley I can walk to Leeds. Well we had a good conference Pres Penrose spoke three times and a number of the other elders made good talks. Three were released to go home. You must be having a serious time with the children. When I show their picture to anybody they say you have the hardest part of the mission. The chickens never have paid. I thought you would have your garden planted before this. I think you will get left if you think you can support yourself and the kids. But hope you make a success of it, and then when I come home you can make a little extra effort and keep us all. I won't be any good when I get home after playing gentleman two years. You should see me going around here with a frock coat and a silk hat that shines and if anything touches it we take out our silk handkerchief and smooth it down as careful as a girl powdering. They say that I am getting fat. Sunday I weighed 163 that is about the same as I weighed at home so I don't think I have changed much in the six months away from home. There was an elder over here form the conference where Josiah Blackburn is laboring he says Josiah can preach all day. 18th Just received you pencil letter, to the last question yes. Haven't visited that S. Anornson with third tract will have to leave my friends to the new elders. You know the bible says, "Paul plantethApoloswatereth, but God gives the increase." My new pants wore out in the seat. I had the tailor patch them he charged 25 cts. If the kids get all right it will be a blessing. But I don't understand why you don't feel better. Paul must be shivering. They can spend it all. They use cabbage here as soon as it gets as large as a good sized lettuce head. Tell Perry he doesn't need to work in the night. Jessie always be the best in your class then you will be a good man when you grow up. When children like young Taylor get married it is like children playing house. Go to Sarah's and get a touch of high life it will do you good. I have a good fountain pen. Lige I is a liberal sort of a chap. Stella must be a big girl if she can go to Cahoons with milk. The children will be so large I will say who's big children. Sell the chickens and spend the money. I have met the woman that married C.J. Durran's father her address is (18 A Primrose Terrace Maningham Bradford) She is a Mormon but said she hadn't been to meeting for a long time said she would do better. She said she would write to him. There was 12 more baptized in this conference Saturday. I am sending two clippings from the Battey News giving   an account of our regular Sunday meeting and Monday night social. We have a friend that is a reporter for that paper. Our Landlady says she feels sorry to see me leave. I don't know what to write about. My new address will be: (50 Wesley Street Morley Near Leeds, Yorkshire) The change will make my mail one day later for a month until it comes direct to me again. I took my pencil and sat down and began to figure my expenses it has cost me about 25 per month but think I can make an average of about 20 do me. We will be appointed away every Sunday until we get a hall opened and a branch organized at Morley. Remember the new address (50 Wesley Street Morley, Yorkshire Eng) Give my best regards to any inquiring friends. Love to all Silas Hinckley P.S. RH Smith and wife are here staying with us tonight. S.H.

Pleasant Grove Dec 18th 1896 Mrs Hinckley Dear Sister I will now answer your welcome letter 18 Nov hope you will pardon me for not answering before but I have been waiting to tell you the glad news. We have got such a sweet little boy 10 days old. Today he weighed 9 lbs he looks so much like Grace did and he is just as good as he can be. Now you want to hurry up. So you got a boy to show me when I get home or I don't know as I will let you see mine. Well we are getting along fine I got up the 6th day and have been up every day since. I am glad that I stayed but now I feel kinda anxious to get home. I want to name the baby Hyrum Orval, if Hy likes it. Don't think you will know Grace when you see her she has grown so big and just as sweet as ever. She likes her brother; she is her grandma's girl alltogether. It's a pity poor people can't keep up in fashion but last year it was all boys and this year all girls. So you see I am always behind, but my stile is as good anybody's at least I think so. I am pleased to hear you got a house of your own. I know by experience that you feel more content. How is Sarah getting along and also Min and Adlin hear she has got another boy. Hy was telling me Ely was calculating to get married this fall but did not say who too, and I am kind of anxious to know. I won't tell his old girl. We are having some very fine weather there is no snow on the ground. Well sister, I don't know of any more news this time. We are all busy tending babies. Give my love to all the folks and except (accept?) the same yourself. I remain as ever your friend and sister. Amanda Bell I will be very pleased to hear from you often.

Mammoth Hot Springs Wyoming Aug 1 97 Mrs. Lilly Hinckley Dear one -- Here it is Sunday again I am writing and suppose you are. Have just been talking to the boys from Rexburg that have been hauling tourists they are starting home tonight. I told them to just tell you that they saw me. I looked for a letter today but didn't get it. Don't know what to write. The sawmill is going out in the morning and I expect to help them move. Have had a stiff finger was advised to go to the doctor with it but it is better. Mr Burns just tells me that I will take a load of ratios to O Briens camp in the morning, so I won't get any mail until I get back about 4 days. Joe Taylor and the other mormon boys are in O'Briens camp. If there is mistakes in my letters you must not notice them, I have no rubber (eraser) and never read my letters over. am going to the PO to direct this letter no I won't either because I can't get until night and it would not go off tonight. Everybody says I am getting fat, but I don't weigh any more. Yes I drink tea, coffee, water and ice it's the whiskers well you had ought to see them, but then you couldn't for they have been kept short. The mustache came off last Sunday and they said it made a difference in me. I don't like the tea and coffee it is almost the clear stuff. Where is Eli? The sawmill crew almost all know him. Today is Monday, but I didn't wash. Tell me all the news and something else. I must close with love from Silas Hinckley

Life timeline of Lilly Elnora Bell

Lilly Elnora Bell was born on 10 Aug 1873
Lilly Elnora Bell was 16 years old when The Eiffel Tower is officially opened. The Eiffel Tower is a wrought iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars in Paris, France. It is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.
Lilly Elnora Bell was 25 years old when Spanish–American War: The Treaty of Paris is signed, officially ending the conflict. The Spanish–American War was fought between the United States and Spain in 1898. Hostilities began in the aftermath of the internal explosion of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor in Cuba, leading to US intervention in the Cuban War of Independence. American acquisition of Spain's Pacific possessions led to its involvement in the Philippine Revolution and ultimately in the Philippine–American War.
Lilly Elnora Bell was 32 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
Lilly Elnora Bell was 39 years old when The British passenger liner RMS Titanic sinks in the North Atlantic at 2:20 a.m., two hours and forty minutes after hitting an iceberg. Only 710 of 2,227 passengers and crew on board survive. RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early hours of 15 April 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. There were an estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, and more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line. It was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her architect, died in the disaster.
Lilly Elnora Bell was 55 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Lilly Elnora Bell was 57 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
Lilly Elnora Bell was 72 years old when World War II: Hiroshima, Japan is devastated when the atomic bomb "Little Boy" is dropped by the United States B-29 Enola Gay. Around 70,000 people are killed instantly, and some tens of thousands die in subsequent years from burns and radiation poisoning. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Lilly Elnora Bell was 84 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
Lilly Elnora Bell died on 17 Nov 1961 at the age of 88
