Before the Manifesto: The Life Writings of Mary Lois Walker Morris. Mary Morris's memoir frames her 1879 to 1887 diary with both reflections on earlier years and passages that parallel entries in the day book, giving readers a better understanding of how she retrospectively saw her life. The thoroughly annotated diary offers the daily experience of a woman who kept a largely self-sufficient household, had a wide social network, ran her own business, wrote poetry, and was intellectually curious.

Mary Lois Walker Morris was a Mormon woman who challenged both American ideas about marriage and the U.S. legal system. Before the Manifesto provides a glimpse into her world as the polygamous wife of a prominent Salt Lake City businessman, during a time of great transition in Utah. This account of her life as a convert, milliner, active community member, mother, and wife begins in England, where her family joined the Mormon church, details her journey across the plains, and describes life in Utah in the 1880s. Her experiences were unusual as, following her first husband's deathbed request, she married his brother, as a plural wife, in the Old Testament tradition of levirate marriage. Mary Morris's memoir frames her 1879 to 1887 diary with both reflections on earlier years and passages that parallel entries in the day book, giving readers a better understanding of how she retrospectively saw her life. The thoroughly annotated diary offers the daily experience of a woman who kept a largely self-sufficient household, had a wide social network, ran her own business, wrote poetry, and was intellectually curious. The years of "the Raid" (federal prosecution of polygamists) led Mary and Elias Morris to hide their marriage on "the underground," and her to perjury in court during Elias's trial for unlawful cohabitation. The book ends with Mary Lois's arrival at the Salt Lake Depot after three years in exile in Mexico with a polygamist colony.

Loved the book. My ancestors happened to be from Elias Morris's first wife Mary Parry. Was able to find a lot of information about my great grandmother Winnifred who quite often was referred to as Winnie. Found references to many other relatives who lived at that time or were part of that polygamist family. Found it very interesting that Mary Walker Morris always refered to the first wife Mary Parry as "my husbands other wife". I sensed this was a difficult situation for her and my great great grandmother.
Mr.Champions
When we are faced with having to do something we don't understand, the angst will rise to levels of making one emotionally and sometimes physically sick. When we can rationalize our thoughts thru justification of our actions, we can supress those feelings and often move forward feeling we can do more than our challenge.

In the case of Mary Lois Walker Morris, she was faced with following the laws of her religion and her justification becomes a secondary thought by exercising faith in what she does not understand. Even to the point of defending that law. I admire her and her faith.

Her story is complex and very interesting. It goes to the emotion of a Celestial marriage and following the teachings of her faith. She is an example to us all and she will be rewarded on the other side of the veil for what she has done here on earth.

Deep thought reading.
